What Shall I Draw June 25th?

On the heels of Heroes Convention weekend (last weekend), the next session of “What Shall I Draw Today?” comes to my Instagram this Sunday, June 25th. It’s a block of time, in this case an 8-hour block, reserved for me to draw people’s topic suggestions.

All pieces drawn will be put up for sale at my next comic convention appearance (to be announced).

What Shall I Draw Today?
Sunday, June 25th, 2017
Eastern Daylight Time:  12pm - 8 pm
Pacific Daylight Time:  9am - 5 pm

(inspired by the work of the Hildebrandt Bros.)
Blue pencil on Bristol Board.
6.35 cm x 8.89 cm (2.50 in. x 3.50 in.).

Queen and Sober

Color pencil and black ink on Bristol Board.
6.35 cm x 8.89 cm (2.50 in. x 3.50 in.). 
The Queen, a.k.a. the Evil Queen, step-mother to Snow White, with her jealousy and vanity is the essential driving force to the later’s classic story. While the Queen’s story arc has the simple moral lesson of “don’t be like that,” 21st century eyes, if she had not overreached, she could have dominated the land indefinitely.

With this unprompted collector card size sketch, I experimented with utilizing black ink for the black parts of her costume while avoiding typical cartoon outlines. Tonal purple pencil defines the rest of her royal visage.
