this much I know...



(I have not finished this one yet, there are a few other things I might add yet...)

I think the biggest test will be whether I can keep each girls features and characteristics the same so they are recognisable as being themselves (I think the shading on this ones face is a little darker than the first one).  So to aid this I am thinking I will keep some similar features, elements or themes for each of them...

Ariadne is always going to have a red scarf, green eyes, a viking type hat and more often than not a red dress. There will also be any one or more of the following around her, a strand of red wool, flying birds, a maze wall, sheep, signs and arrows. Ariadne is quiet and thoughtful and a little bit shy, she is very quick on her feet and is ever so clever, as she would need to be to navigate herself and others through the endless labyrinth and away from the dark beast... who lives in a dark fort on a hill in the middle of the labyrinth.

I so enjoy the stories behind your girls. Ariadne's eyes are an amazing shade of green.
