Drawing progress: Developing symbols for Princess and Castle

Using a Faber Castell Pitt sepia pigment liner to draw a residential castle freehand.
Adding a bit of color.
Nicole's current rendition of a castle had been colored with some Crayola Extreme colors pencils which were not picked up by the scanner.
Following her older sister's example and practicing her triangular shapes used for castle roofing

and a clown's hat.
Having fun coloring with some watercolor pencils.
Colored cartoon portrait.
Doodling a "Princess" with a Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen.
Nicole's current symbol for "Princess" is inspired by the common imagery of Princesses in today's media and features a fair amount of attention to detail: 5-digits hands, braided hair, symmetrical gown design.
