While taking Deana David's "Design like Fairy Tales" class I created a sketch of what a scene from the Princess and the pea would look like. The final piece is a more polished version of the sketch.
This was a quick and fun piece to hook. However, if I were to do it again, I would make the piece bigger so that I could give the princess more detail. It was very difficult to create her as small as she is successfully.
