As an exercise, I decided to fill a 100-page pocket sketchbook throughout June with live-inks, so no pencils, and with the hopes of filling it primarily with more intricate pieces like this or even that, as opposed to super loose stuff. This is one of my favorite "complex" pieces from the run, also one of the latest.
Hmm. I don't draw much medieval/fantasy stuff. This was kinda based on the idea of a reluctant knight or something...or like she's not certain she's really the pick to head into the big leagues, you know? I mainly wanted to draw complicated costuming off the top of my head while still including "rest" areas, too, like the collar and cape parts.
