Princess Captured

I came across a recent piece by the great Socar Myles, called "You Have Been Trolled". It features a handsome troll! Awed by her piece (click on the title), I followed up on what she mentioned as particular influences: John Bauer, and Wangjia.
I liked Bauer's trolls, which seemed peace-loving. A particular illustration from 1915, depicting four trolls that had kidnapped a Princess, made me want to sketch the whole thing . So I sketched the Princess. This is 100% impulsive.
I hope you liked the princess, and the story of the sketch. Thank you kindly for your visit. Have a great art time!

  1. I had always dreamed of meeting or rescuing a lovely princess until I met my wife. Your sketch reminded me of this memory.
