I've been working on this enchanted idea on and off for another month, sketching out different things as I search for a good angle on the story. I wanted my composition to be good this time so I took a break and worked on some composition studies as well in my spare time. Guys like Dean Cornwell and Juarez Mercado really help me out and I'll do quick line drawings and then value drawings from their work. The above image is the final drawing I'm working on painting now.
Sketch that finally got me really excited.
Sketch I almost went with.
I played around with the idea of critters being enchanted by her instead of a guy.
