Prompt: Beautiful Dream
prompted by: katerina Koukiotis, during Sketch Fest #16 (July, 2011)

This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!

I pictured a knight getting lost in a forest thinking he was dreaming if he ever saw this wild elf. I'm really happy with the way she turned out, pencil on illustration board 5X7. I didn't have time to finish the shading and all the details, but I think I'm going to clear gesso her and....oh man...try to paint her with oil paints(I've never painted with oils before!!) so we'll see how she turns out...if she doesn't at least I have the scan, I can always try again! wish me luck:)
