After I found a book on good and bad fairies by Brian Froud, I got lots of visual ideas for face shapes.
Her mouth became quite small, but with a hint of large front teeth. The space between mouth and nose puffed out like a grazing animal.
Her eyes turned out just as I wanted: large, expressive and alert.
|Not quite human.|
Then I knew who she was, my Princess was a deer princess! A kind doe. She only speaks quietly and thoughtfully.
I'll show more of her, when she is properly finished. She needs some ears now you see. And hair.
A little road-trip was called for when we bought a new coffee table. Which was in Rotorua.
So we went for a day trip, 5 and a half hours there and back. With lovely stops in Taupo for great coffee and morning tea. The weather was lovely and spring like. Lake Rotorua smooth and even the usual sulphur smell there, was not too over whelming.
