30 Day Drawing Challenge – Day 14

Day 14: Favorite fairytale

First of all: I love fairytales! I am very fond of the Norwegian fairytales collected by Asbjørnsen and Moe! So I chose one of their tales, Østenfor sol og vestenfor måne, or East of the Sun and West of the Moon. 

I see everyone painting or drawing the princess on the back of the polar bear, so I decided to draw another part of the tale, where the girl rides the northern wind to go find the prince! There is a similar fairytale, Kvitbjørn Kong Valemon, or White-Bear-King-Valemon, which is slightly different and doesn’t have this part of the story. It’s kind of funny to read them next to each other, so much alike yet so different.
