I wanted to try a simple way of colouring, keeping a limited pallet for a change, as I usually go overboard with shading with loads of different colours. I've always loved Abigail Larson's way of colouring and wanted to try it out. There's something really appealing about the hand drawn sketch with the subtle computerised colouring.

I've decided to enter a competition to win the opportunity to illustrate the new Michael Morpurgo's "Beauty and the Beast". It would be amazing if I won, as the book will be published with my illustrations! This is a little sketch of what my Beauty could look like. I did another drawing similar to this with her in a rust-coloured dress. I think that coloured dress could be better. Still working on the design of her. Next I will be thinking of how to draw Beast.
