Well, following my fairy tale theme, I decided to illustrate Rapunzel, which I actually illustrated before (albeit much less successfully). Obviously there is one glaring problem with this image (well, hopefully there is only one), and that is that, how on earth does the Rapunzel's hair support the witch, who obviously has some kind of giant blood in her. The answer is obviously that Rapunzel has an incredibly strong set of hair, and a deceptively strong neck.

And in case you were wondering what my earlier illustration of Rapunzel looked like;

I wish I could it was done a long time ago, but it was actually only a few years ago. In my defence it was part of a three week assignment when I was at uni, and I had to do it alongside 24 other illustrations (also part of that same assignment) which is why it looks a bit rough. The good news is that I'm fairly certain I can say that I've improved a lot since then, which is always reassuring and encouraging. If I can improve that much in less than 3 years, then hopefully I can continue to improve in the future, which is why I always keep all my illustrations (I still have some that I drew when I was in primary school and no, I won't show those - I mean look how bad I was a couple of years ago, imagine what I was like 15 years ago).
