Sketch #97 Scene 7

This is the last scene I drew in my Waitbook 1. I am looking forward to sketching more scenes in my next Waitbook 2.The rest of my Waitbook 1 is filled with leaf dragons.

I was doodling along and decided to add an elf king to the sketch. He seems to think he is hidden, concentrating so hard on the reddish flying prey, but he's not. The little blue guy without antennae seems to be thinking about what kind of threat the king may be, probably none. He doesn't have a net and their size is quite large relative to his. The oak leaf dragon is keeping very still in hopes that the king will not see him, so far so good :)

I enjoy drawing these scenes. They do take longer to sketch, ink, and color than a single item, thus I have to be in the proper mood to work on one.

Have a wondrous day,
Theta

I love your scenes! I think they are so cute! Love the introduction of the elf king to the mix. Really cute Theta. :)

Thanks, Deb!

I had a lot of fun with this one and am thinking about more scenes with characters. I'm not too consistent about drawing the same character over the same way - never could be a strip cartoonist :D, so I'm not sure if they will connect or be vignettes. I love how my sub-conscious works away on things (like these sketches) while my conscious handles the tasks at hand.

Thanks, Scrapladyandmore!

I like doing them, because they give a sense of what kind environment the creatures live in and that helps create and continue their story.
