Rose Red


Rose Red © DC Comics

I just started reading the first trade of Vertigo's FABLES and thought I would try to paint one of the characters. I don't know the character well enough from reading, so I could only go by images I have seen. Much like doing a commission for someone of a character I don't really know. Hopefully this rings a bit true. Watercolor on an 8" x 10" sheet of Arches Cold Press watercolor board.

This is Post #1365

Thanks LJ. I was hoping it just didn't come off as some random redhead. :)
