Just a quick black pen drawing with some watercolour to help get my hand back into drawing. It's been awhile!

Daily Drawing Prompt - Draw a Queen.

This was fun.
I used artrage and an image found online.
I drew the piece and then used the stencil function in Artrage to make a stencil of the whole image on the background layer then resized it to the correct size.
I used metallic, digital, crayons forthe piece and the paintroller for the background.
I really love the result!
Been getting a bit more into digital drawing lately because I've been sick and unable to get all the gear out, the laptop and tablet do it fine!
