Fancy Maiden and Fancy Mushroom, Pen and Ink

Red Gwendolyn, and Home of the Astral Gnome
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″ Copic markers and uni PIN pens

Two from recent themes – Fancy Dress, and Tiny Houses.

Still smack in the middle of busy season at work so less energy for art. Arrrgh! Hello to Paint Party Friday! Thanks for dropping in!

    Royalty and the home of a duchess, or an astral gnome:) Love the blues against Gwen’s red hair!

    Woohoo! I am so glad you are still drawn back to fancy maidens, because you do the best fancy! All the best fancy! Her headdress is magnificent!

    Okay, remember that game I was talking about where I try to find all the changes you’ve made from one progress pic to the next? I cannot find the difference(s) between the penultimate fancy maiden progress pic and the final one. HELP ME, OBI WAN KEFANCY! What did you add?

      Thank you, AnnD! Sometimes I accidentally put the same image twice. Though in this case it seems the eye highlights changed EVER SO SLIGHTLY. It probably wasn’t worth posting that additional step. :D

    (gasp) I adore your artwork. The detail, grace, simplicity and the gorgeous colors you used, just fill my eyes–which is the greatest compliment I can give.

    Cindy, great color palette for the two illustrations. I always like the design on your Renaissance inspired costumes. I like those vibrant colors on the mushroom house!

      Thank you! She is undoubtedly exasperated by her required presence at a society event of one sort or the other. Of course she would rather be walking in the woods with her hounds!
