Queen of Frost and Darkness 1 by janey-jane Queen of Frost and Darkness 1 by janey-jane
This is the interior illustration for the story 'Queen of Frost and Darkness' by Christine Pope from the winter issue of Dark Valentine Magazine. I loved illustrating for this story - its a Russian-style fairytale with an additional modern, narrative bent and is absolutely lovely.

The cover illustration for the same issue:

What an interesting character. I'm getting a lot of superiority, daintiness, and possibly evil. I think it's the way her nose is shaped and her eyes are pointed. You can kind of see that their something about her that makes woman nervous and men swoon. That's kind o what I'm getting when seeing this picture. Overall, it's a beautiful piece.

Love the detail put into this illustration, its very pleasing to the eyes. I love the expressions of the woman looking upon the queen and everything.
