Final digital piece.

While this was a digital piece that was created in Procreate, I actually did do a pencil sketch to the general lettering style and composition before I got started. I took a photo of this and brought it into Procreate so that I could use it as a base to start my digital drawing. For color choices, I wanted this to be bright, conquering, and a bit of a fairy tale inspiration, so i went with bright colors to offset the dark doubts. A fun personal piece.
