Eleventh-hour, but what the heck. The idea was cute and wouldn't get outta my head.
Six colors: black, white, green, pink, lavendar and yellow. On Slate.

Yeah, I can tell this was eleventh hour, yoursubmissions are usually more polished than this. I think it's because each element seems to be a different style from the others - the princess, the bed, and the pea - and so that gives it a less cohesive feel. I like the idea of the pea being all pissed at the princess for sitting on him!

(Also, your pea does look an awful lot like a male version of the green M&M, perhaps using a different color for the arms would help? Like green arms and hands?)

LOL, "Green M&M," that's funny! I think it's his size that makes it look like that?

I like the concept, Paige, nice to see a different take (Fat princess crushing the Pea is an instant classic). Maybe a word balloon with cursing substitute sybols, but I guess that would still be considered text, so maybe a Pig with a crown in the balloon?

Lol! I never even thought of the M&M. I was just thinking 'pea with buttcrack'. You know how peas have that little crease...?
Yeah, I was unhappy with the result of the original sketch, and still not happy with the final. I used hard lines for the bed and the pea, but free-handed the princess. I should have known better and freehanded the whole thing.
