After I did the comic book post, I was inspired to create Super Hero – Princess Blue Holly
For my first try I used the water colour crayons that Gigi turned me onto. It really has a nice comic book look.
Princess Blue Holly is based on the plant by that name (and Holly from House of Heart). Her super powers come from reading up about the plant. Above is my first rough up.
I painted it to look like silver lame. I used pencil, silver acrylic, water colour pen and an extra fine marker for lips and lashes.
I also did a gown using the water colour crayons. It seems more congruous with the opening image of Princess Blue Holly.

There’s so much more to know: how she got her super powers, how she transforms, how she finds villains, how she deals with them, her super healing powers for good guys, etc. I’m working on all that, and one day Princess Blue Holly will be back with new sketches.
