The process of developing a character.

Sketch #2...

 done with Sharpie markers.

Sketch #3 

I am trying to figure out what her body is going to look like.

Painting...need to work out issues with the frog...

The steps I go through to work out a character. 

 This poor little princess is supposed to have stringy hair, and a wart on her nose.  She is a swamp princess.  When all is said and done I still think she needs work, but I like where she is going.  

P.S. the background hasn't gotten very swampy has it.  Just added a quick landscape so I would have a finished look.
