Just For Fun - Snow White (C) DISNEY
Sometimes when I doodle I have a “go to” pose that I enjoy drawing. This one seems to be a favorite of mine. Similar pose, different character. A change of hair style, hand gesture and clothes make the whole thing seem new again. A perfect “princess pose”. It often happens when I’m not thinking about it, as if a character is just stopping by to say hello. And, it always brings a smile to my face.
