This is something that came to me when I was idly fingering my Wacom and staring blankly my Photoshop. I decided to go for it and make something very random... so I thought of a pose and started doodling it in before even properly finishing the idea, and it sorta... evolved from a stick figure to a shadow figure. Then I felt bad about just leaving it be since I had already gone so far, so I added some colours. My layer working was one horrible scene of course, all progress from the figure to shading being on one layer and miscellaneous little crap being on five other layers.

Someone might remember the character from one of my earlier crappy doodlings (still in my gallery here), and I figured she would be insignificant enough for some speedpainting.

Photoshop CS, 1,5 hours. No critique on this one, because I'm definitely NOT going to do anything to this anymore.

i actually liked the old version of the queen better, but this is still good.

Good picture! I still prefer the older version but I do like her cloak of feathers in this one!
