Mini Mel

A while ago a created this digital image Mel's Fancy Dress.  She's my take on a young Maleficent with a little crow friend.  But because of similarities in her appearance to Maleficent I've decided not to put her in my shop as an item to buy in case of any copyright infringement issues with Disney!
I drew this image for my mum - she's a real Maleficent fan.

I've tried out some new pens for the colouring of this image.  They're called Chameleon Pens.  I've not got used to them yet but hope to have more of a play with them soon.  The colouring was finished off with poelychromos pencils a little black and dark purple.

The background was done with Chameleon pens and a black artists pen. 

I definitely needed to keep this as a CAS card to showcase Mel and her little crow.  All I've done is mounted her onto some back card stock and distressed the edges of both.

My finishing touch was to add the sentiment in biro "Wen I grow up I want to be a Dragon!"

Hope you all love Mel :D
