Flying Ships

The last one took such a long time, and I've colored so many Brownies to date, that I felt I deserved a break. This is one of four images I have that feature the original colors from an early edition of the first Brownie Book. The other three may or may not make it onto cards. This one had a wider aspect than I wanted. so I edited out four or five Brownies from the bottom mid-right, and moved the two Brownies on the right end in to fill the gap. This allowed me to keep the image at a larger size, and it also allowed the trumpeter Brownie to be that much more irritating to the soldier Brownie on the right.

The story details The Brownies adventure after hours in a toyshop, which explains the ships on the wall.
