A Painting and Some Laaadies

Here is a little color study of a character from the story I'm exploring for my Senior Studio class. This project is going waaaaaay slower than I'd like. I lost steam halfway through and have been chugging along at low steam since. It's based on the Sword in the Stone but set in 17th century India. This is the main character (the orphaned king)'s best friend, Sai. She was horribly burned as a toddler and often hides her face with a scarf. She climbs better than a monkey and is daring and mischevious.

Watercolors on paper.

I crashed the costumed figured drawing class on my first day free after leaving my retail job. The model was a bit stiff/bland, and it took me a long while to get into the swing of things but I had so much fun! I want to do some watercolors of some of these.
