It's the weekend!

And she is happy about it. Or about something. We should all have a good chuckle like her now and then. Here is the Laughing Fairy inked and ready for color. Though she will have to wait. Did this while watching ENCHANTED. What a really fun movie. I think the mood of the movie crept into my inking. It has a happy feel to it. This is inked on 11" x 17" bristol board.

I really like your inks on this one Gene. You nailed the fabric and the hair in my humble untrained opinion. Happy Weekend to all.

The overall emotion of this piece really makes it appealing. She is having fun and so should you!

Gene, was this piece done just because you sketched it out in the sketchbook and then wanted to complete it on 11 x 17? Or is this planned for a series like Island Girls?

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Gary - This piece and almost every one you see that is not a copyrighted character is headed for CILM. The island girls are going to be just 4 of the 12 images. I sketch a lot of ideas. Some make the cut, others don't. For example I posted a couple of figures that had wings and when I sized them up, they just don't seem to be working out. I got frustrated and then this one came about. :)
