28 Drawings Later – Days 14, 15 and 16

Another three in one catch up post today… A castle, an apple and a comb.  Classic fairytale fare.

The first one is a bit of a doodle which I did at work on Tuesday.  The castle that lies east of the sun and west of the moon – the heroine has to ride all four of the winds to get there you know.  She’s pretty hardcore.

Day 14 - the evil queen's castle

Then we have a golden apple, given to the girl by an old lady for no very good reason.  There are three old ladies and three fairly disparate golden items they bestow upon her – they’re sort of like a low rent Q from the James Bond movies.

Day 15 - a golden apple

According to the story, which I did not refer to until after drawing this, it was meant to be a golden carding comb rather than a hair one… oops.

Day 16 - a golden comb
