TRDL 2011 Series No. 26 - Elphaba [Wicked]

This was based on a sketch I did for the daily sketch challenge on #DailySketchChallenge, on DA.

I’ve wanted to draw Elphaba ever since I saw Wicked, but never had the chance until now. While I really love her look in the musical, with the tight ponytail and glasses, I was inspired to give her tight kinky hair and a looser robe. Well, a MUCH looser robe, this being a pin-up and all… however, when I started the piece, I had a few ugly little monkey minions sitting with her, but I decided to redraw that aspect of the piece, and ended up drawing a monkey minion in a bomber jacket, which I think steals the show, personally.
