Anyway, since the Daytona 500 was postponed to last night, my evening was filled with the TV blaring the roar of cars, well...driving in circles. (I do not, and doubt I ever will, understand the appeal of that. But my husband does, hence the TV. Sigh.)
Because I could not concentrate on writing, even with massive headphones on (projecting a not-quite-comparable-to-the-cars blare of music), I decided to draw. This is the (unfinished) result:
She's based on a photo of a girl I took at the Sarasota Medieval Fair a little over a year ago:
So, yes, I know mine is different. I didn't tackle the glasses, and changed some details. But I had fun drawing it. I felt like a dork asking this girl if I could take her picture, but I just loved her costume--does she not look adorable? I sure hope she's okay with me posting it. If you are ever at a Medieval Fair and see her, go buy something at her vendor booth so she doesn't get mad at me :).
I'm not sure if I'll finish off this drawing or start a new one that's not so animationy.
And maybe I'll turn her into a character in my book....
I like your art style. Even though your illustration doesn't look exactly like the girl at the fair, I like your interpretation of her. And medieval fairs are fun - our area's renaissance fair is going on right now.
Thanks, David :).
Hey, that's coming along pretty good. I like the wing thingies in her hair. That's quite a costume. I think the girl in your sketch needs fairy wings. Of course, I just watched Hook and I have Tinkerbell on the brain.
Thanks, Kessie. I hadn't thought of fairy wings....hm....
Very cool, Kat. By the by, I just tagged you for the "Versatile Blogger Award." It's more of a meme than an award, though I do think you're pretty versatile...play if you like, no pressure. Details at http://frederation.wordpress.com/2012/02/28/tagged-again/
Thanks, Fred :). Should be fun--and it gives me a topic for my next blog, eh?
