The Violet-Tailed Sylph

So instead of putting up just the finished piece I decided to post a few of the images that I took while trying to draw this one.

One of the things that I wanted to achieve with this doodle-a-day challenge was to improve my technique when sketching. Improvement only comes with practice so for this doodle I decided to try and draw something that really challenged me.

I’m not a 100% happy with how it looks after the water-colour pencils but that’s something I can work on throughout the year and hopefully get right on a future piece.
