This Way, This Way

What happens when you sneak into a fairy garden...

This was a really old sketch that I decided to color to test out my new set of 24 Faber-Castell Polychromos. They aren't as creamy as Prismacolors, but I like the colors. It took a lot of pressure for me to get shadows with these pencils, but they make such beautiful, crisp lines. They also erase well and sharpen to a VERY fine point really easily. I think I might try mixing them with creamier pencils in the future, or maybe using them with markers.

Grace was the working title (I had to save it as SOMETHING, and I have so many doodles named "girl 1" "girl 2" that it gets very confusing). She was originally in a ball gown and had a very long, graceful neck and very fancy hair piled on top of her head, and the name Grace was very fitting. Then she turned into a girl in a t-shirt with a pony-tail. Then she turned into Disney's Belle. Then she turned into this. Since I can never think of titles, this is still called Grace.
