This was a wedding gift for a friend of mine. It's her character, Katzenjammer, a mischievous little Gypsy who likes to steal things on occasion who goes by Katz or Katzen for short. Katzenjammer, like many of the characters I draw for others, hails from the mythical land of Dragon Court, which is a fantasy based RPG Java clicky-game online. I believe Katz also RPs her in Everquest. Like the gypsies of old, Katz didn't really 'fit' with society. As an outcast, she was forced to find other means to support herself as she lived a life on the fringe of society stealing from passers-by whenever she could just to make a few pennies to sustain herself. At the solstice celebrations, she'd dance. We managed to catch Katz in mid-dance, where she is likely enchanting her audience and filching purses from any spectators who are overly boisterous or need to lighten the weight of their pockets. The drawing itself is pencil. I don't like coloring on my originals, so I printed out a cleaned up version of the line work and colored that with color pencils. I will be the first to admit my coloring is somewhat shoddy-- especially when done at 2AM so I can get it done and scanned in before I leave to drive the 7 hours to the wedding location. I finished it Sept 9, 2004. Other Gypsies of note in fantasy settings: The Gypsies in the movie EverAfter The Gypsies in the Quest for Glory IV computer game The Gypsy Esmarelda in The Hunchback of NotreDame
