DOLL: Amethyst

Amethyst Doll, final & original sketch
Watercolor & acrylic-based india ink
December 2009

NOTE: Normally I prefer the sketch to be on the left with the finished work on the right...blogger wouldn't let me do that without a huge gap, so this post is what it is.  Sorry about that.

The final piece wasn't supposed to have a sparkly magic effect, but due to a nasty error (which was me blowing at a piece of cat hair on the paper IN DIRECT LINE with the acrylic pen nib...whoops!), I had to cover it up with a silver sparkle ink.  Looks just like sparks under the right light.  As the artist, though, I just see MISTAKES!!!  That's the joy of creating, I suppose - learning & making oneself better through error :)

DISCLAIMER: Amethyst Princess of Gemworld is © DC Comics...and they didn't do a thing with her in YEARS, only to reboot her in an almost-unrecognizable form.  I don't think I'll be producing any "Amaya" work as my heart & devotion belong to the original.  I'm a stickler that way ;P
