Here's a recent Daily Doodle topic I did over on Twitter. The topic was The Princess Bride. I nearly did Inigo Montoya, because I like to ink solid black hair... But I decided to be lazy and go the easy route with Princess Buttercup instead, since I was actually very busy, and as we all know, my default sketch state is 'girl in pretty dress' :p
The colour version above I did in Photoshop later, when I had a spare half hour. Originally I did a black and white watercolour version - I had bought some cool grey ecoline for use in the picture book I'm currently working on. I'd never used it before and wanted to practice on something unimportant before I potentially ruined a freshly-inked double page spread. :p
