Mo's Digital Pencil--Fantasy?

I love the theme this week by my sweet friend Pat, who chose the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge theme of Fairies, Elves, Santa, or Snowman.  I hope that also includes Dwarves.  I kind of took it to mean all fantasy characters, my favorite!!!  Here is my choice and let the challenge police decide...I am such a rebel: 

I LOVE the dwarves Mo created for her Snow White story line and although there are only a few so far they are awesome.  This is Dwarf 4 and isn't he just the gruffest looking little guy with his pipe and braided beard. 
I colored him with copics and sponged with distressed inks.  Added an assortment of dp scattered behind with a pretty frame, two corner brackets, a rolled rose and a double tied tan bow in the upper left corner. 
This was so much fun to create and one of these days the rest of the guys are going to make their appearance too!!!

Be sure to stop by the  Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT has to show you and leave them some love and then get back to the family and have that pie that is waiting for you.  Hope you all have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.  I am thankful to be spending mine with family and friends, hope you get to do the same!!!  On a selfish note I am thankful for the wonderful illustrators such as Mo who create such wonderful digital images so I get to color until my heart and brain are content, Thank you!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

This guy is such a hoot and looks fabulous, beautifully coloured, in this layout. My hubby decided to grow a beard and tash in October and still hasn't trimmed it. If he keeps it up - this image will be the one I use for his Christmas card next year!!! Hugs, Lesley
