Snow Queen by ~Xadrial. The Suggester said: "Simply a STUNNING illustration. The design of the queen is absolutely mindblowing, and every detail is lovingly fleshed out and painted so precisely... a wonderful, wonderful work by ~Xadrial". ( Suggested by alicexz and Featured by Atramina )

When i think Snow/Ice Queen i actually think of the witch from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe from The Chronicles of Narnia. This is a beautiful piece by the way.

For those who wonder about the meaning of Snow Queen, read this. notesoftheages.blogspot.com.br…
About this work, I think it's great, especially the colors. But I have two complaints: the Queen does not seem so bad and Kai is not pale.

That's because the Snow Queen isn't even the main antagonist of the original story. She's more like neutral.

She was the antagonist. Remember that she was very cold-hearted. She practically forced Kai to come with her to Finnmark.

The Wikipedia page doesn't say so.

Do you trust a wikipedia article which anyone can edit any time or the actual story written by the actual author? The Snow Queen was the villain, but she was "unwillingly cruel". If I remember right, the mirror which the devils used shows only the bad sides of even the kindest people. The Snow Queen received a curse which could only be lifted by forming the word "eternity" (or eternal, I'm not sure which. I read the story in my native language) out of ice fragments.

Also, The Snow Queen DID practically force Kai to come with her. She kissed him two times, the kisses froze his heart and made him somewhat cold-hearted (literally too) and enslaved him, making him solve the puzzle to lift the curse.

Hmmm, maybe you're right, maybe not. Where else should I look for more information?

How about reading the story? The original story is the best information you need. I really recommend it, it's one of H.C. Andersen's best ones :)
