Starting the Paintings

 I've transfered my sketches onto the canvases, using first pencil, then making the final lines with a sharpie pen. I wasn't happy with the long necked Alice, so I made her neck normal, it looks better on this size canvas. The rabbit didn't quite fill the space as I  had envisioned, but I'll work on that later. All in all, there were no big surprises - having a detailed sketch should eliminate that hurdle. Then I painted the marker lines with acrylic paint. It doesn't have to be perfect, thin and thick and messy is okay!
