Princess and the Pea by Sarah Alden

Princess and the Pea
by Sarah Alden

Prompt: princess and the pea
prompted by: laura Buehrer, during Sketch Fest #36 (April, 2013)

I've been wanting to draw this for months, so it was a must when I saw the prompt! I'd been debating for a long time how I wanted to depect the frustrated princess and I'm very happy with how she turned out. Ty for the awesome prompt Laura


Afke says: Ooooh, she looks like a serious case of insomnia indeed! That facial expression is well captured! Would love to see colors on this; I remember my fairytale book from when I was a kid, loveliest about this story I found all those layers of colors from all the different mattresses. ;D ~ Reply?

     Sarah Alden replied to this: Awww thank you so very much Afke, I'm so pleased that it reads as that serious case of insomnia! I must agree the colorful mattresses is one of the best parts hehe so I definitely plan on it and adding more patterns with stripes, floral prints, ect ;)

laura Buehrer says: dont know how I missed this - Love it - Did you ever color it ? Just beautiful ~ Reply?
