This ladies and gentlemen, is Nip. Another of the characters I have created soley for stories I have written. She is a gypsy thief, a procurer of all things rare and mysterious...and qutie the mysterious little person she is indeed. Flying about on her magic carpet with her bag from which she can seemly withdraw anything, she is both mischievious and entertaining. This character study took quite a bit more effort and time than some of my other drawings...but was an exceptionally fun drawing to work on. Again, she was initially rendered using only my favorite .05mm mechanical pencil, and then shaded using a selection of drawing pencils from 2H to 8B, kneaded rubber eraser, a soft white eraser, and blending stumps. There is yet another version of her that has also been inked and colored using Paint Shop Pro that I may choose to upload at a later date, but as my preference truly is for pencil sketches, I shall display this drawing for the time being.
