The Pencil drawing for Queen Maeve was drawn very quickly - I think in about 10 minutes.

It took me ages to come up with an image for her as I was under extreme time restraints to finish illustrating the book.

 

I had to tape an extra sheet of paper three quarters down the drawing because her hair was going to become a design at the bottom of the page.

I redrew the pencil sketch in Pen & Ink and I kept it pretty close to the pencil drawing apart from some variation in her hair.
