~All hail the return of the Princesses Rhyme & Reason~
This is something for my brother as a sort of birthday gift. (Because he introduced me to the book & he loved ponies.)
From the wonderful book of” Phantom Tollbooth”
if you love word-play than the book version of Phantom tollbooth is for you.
In the story there are two Princesses “Princess Sweet Rhyme” & “Princess Pure Reason”, they are two sisters who are very wise & when the kings of Dictionopolis & Digitopolis asked them which one is better than the other.
They said that both words & numbers are important & are equal to each other, the Kings were outraged & banish them to the castle of sky.
Leaving the land in a bit of chaos.
So sometime last year I got jury duty so I bought my sketchpad &” Phantom Tollbooth” with me, waiting to see if I get called decide to read & after reading the back story for the princesses.
A sketch came to my mind so while sitting in the “would-be-juries-room” I drew up Princess Sweet Rhyme the lovely pink alicorn with golden mane.
And then I felt that something should be done, when I got home (did not get picked for jury. \^o^/ ) to do a more fuller sketch of Rhyme & of course her sister Reason.
I had show my brother sketch for Rhyme he actually liked it, so I've been working very hard to finish this for him, at one point I had to stop & think “What should the gem colors be?” “What would he suggest?” (Sorry getting a bit weepy here. T-T)
I hope that I did it justice & that you guys like it as well.
I did use some stock imagery for their crystal/stained-glass effect.
