For me, the queen is not evil. The mirror is the evil one. That bastard was lying to her all the time, feeding her insecurities. If anything, she’s just a little vain. And that kid with the dwarfs is rather annoying and simple. She’s hot and a bit obsessed with herself… but look at her! She’s amazing!
This little piece was supposed to be a birthday gift for Silvia, but I took a month longer than expected. ¡Feliz Cumpleaños Bonita!

I wanted to do a drawing with a character doing some action, so I did some sketches based on sportsmen. The first one, is Mike “Iron” Tyson. I found a picture of him from his “Days of Grace” era, while he was still a heavyweight boxer and not just that guy from The Hangover. I’ll be sending it to my mom, who owns a nice bar in Cartagena called Passport. (Happy Mother’s Day, mom)
Then, we do the flats.
The next thing I do is find out how the volumes should be.
