birds have the best gossip

I posted the sketch for this last summer and just got around to finishing it this week. Talk about a delay. But I'm glad I did, because I still like her quite a lot. She looks slightly less manic since I did away with her crazy eyes, but I'm still pretty convinced that these two are trading salacious palace gossip. And then later the bird will gather a few friends and they'll braid her hair and watch Ever After. She also reminds me a little bit of Maiden FairHair (whose name made no sense because she was a brunette, but whatever) from Lady Lovely Locks, which I swear was a real cartoon even though no one but me seems to remember it.

Clearly my love affair with yellow is still going strong. I think we might make it official soon. I'm always hesitant to name a favorite color because there are so many and they're all so awesome, but I think this time it might last. Yellow could be The One.

The sketch again, because I'm not going to make anyone go back eight months into the archive to see it.
