I drew this on a holiday last year with my boyfriend, on the floor of the hotel. I saw a girl with lots of pretty plaits in her hair and I went 'oooh, I like that' and then I drew this. I tried to draw the plaits that I saw but I couldnt... It evolved into this. Im quite fond of her face. I didn't do it on very good paper, and the pencil wasnt much fun, being at a hotel and everything. When I came home, and having just gotten the coloured pencils, i tried to colour it, and ruined the face, yay my favourite! But it's all ok, I fixed it up, i stayed calm (it's just a drawing, after all) and now Im very happy with it. The black curly thing is meant to be a wrought iron decoration that is like a make shift wall/divider. I was on a big fern phase/kick when i did this as well.
Anyone got an idea for a name? i think she looks like a queen. A modern queen, perhaps a noble. Maybe there are elven tribes hiding in the jungle somewhere, and here we see a noble, or even the queen! she could pose as a noble sometimes, or even a servant (but she doesnt do that so well, she's do damn posh).
Okay, comments please!
