Aladdin - On the Balcony
This is a quick and simple pic. Some time ago I ran a poll asking what Disney princesses you all liked, and while the top spot jumbled around a bit, Jasmine seemed to spend a lot of time at number one and was sitting comfortably ahead at the time the poll closed. So, when I was looking for a quick straight pic I could do to balance things out a bit around here, I went to her.
I had some fun with this one, as I used the colors from the actual balcony scene. I don't usually use such strong purples in my shading, but for this pic it was nice and I'm happy with the final result. I don't suspect this is the last time I'll draw a Disney princess (or even Princess Jasmine, for that matter), and I might try a different palette next time.
Those of you who follow the cBox probably saw that I had to take my computer into the shop again yesterday. I don't think there's anything seriously wrong with it, but it doesn't recognize the wireless adapter inside it and I think it needs to be opened up to fix. I'm mostly waiting for them to get to me, as there were other computers ahead of mine, but I'm optimistic that it'll be a quick fix once it's done. Thankfully, everything I did to continue working last time is still in place, so I was able to keep working on this pic and should be good to continue on others. It's a bit difficult for me to draw new content right now, but anything I did the early sketch work for I should be able to keep working on. Really, the only thing that might be affected by this (unless the computer's gone for a week or more) is the comics.
Also, I'm currently collecting the names of female characters you guys would like to see more of. I always enjoyed doing the Woman of the Month when WWOEC was around, and I'd like to try randomizing the suggestions of my followers to pick an obscure lady to draw sometime this month. I currently have four nominees, but I'm willing to take on a few more before I see who the lucky lady is.
