Princess Tatterhood

Know the old Norwegian fairy tale, "Tatterhood"? Well, for NaNoWriMo this year I'm writing a retelling for it, and this is the concept drawing for the titular character.

Tatterhood (real name "Tara" in my version) is something so rare in fairytale as an ugly and action-oriented princess who dresses in rags, has super strength and some kind of reality-warping power, and beats up on evil trolls and witches with, of all things, a huge wooden ladle. (She also has a twin sister who is extremely beautiful but essentially useless.)

I wanted to see if I could draw her, and ended up playing up her "inhuman" look a little more by, for one thing, making her skin literally gray.
