Fairie Queen

Today I have spent most of my spare time creating this image. (After cleaning 2 bathrooms and vaccuuming the floors in my house. It still needs work, but I just wanted to post this version. I have been studying the artwork of Trina Schart Hyman. She did some amazing art for children's picture books during her career. I love the amount of detail that she brings to each of her subjects.
This may need more color, I haven't decided yet. Her proportions may be off a bit too.

When we come back from our trip to New Mexico, I may try something different either using her or another image.

My latest efforts

Here is my latest sketch of Marmalade. I finished this picture in my last art class on Tuesday. I cannot get over how different she is from my first efforts earlier this year. I'll just keep working at improving my art. It's such a great journey, full of surprises. I have another illustration (below) ready with more color.
Now I have to work on consistency so that she looks the same from one image to another.
