Here is my Little Batty Princess receiving a cake from Fred and his bat friends!

I was so unsure of this painting when I started sketching. I really wanted to keep the character similar from my first painting. But it's a relief now that she is done, I think I managed to be faithful to the design and that she is quite recognizable. Probably more paintings of the Batty Princess coming in a near future. I just adore her!

5x7 watercolor and ink on Fabriano Artistico hot pressed paper.
The Original is for sale, I will probably auction her through Ebay some time later, so if you'd like to have her before I do so, email me or send me a note! 5x7 prints are also available! =)

Cute! I'm wondering, do you ink your pictures before you watercolor them? What nice, adorable bats... X3

Thank you very much! =)

And yes, I do ink every painting before I watercolor. I use Speedball ink, it's wateproof. Perfect for watercolor!

I love her hair and for some reason I can imagine her giggling a lot and being very mischievous.
