Fairytale Initial Letter Illustrations

Here are the final designs from the story-book style "initial letters" I have recently part of my first formal commission! (Wheee!) Even though most rough designs I did had full colour, in the end, the decision was made for the finals to be in monochrome. I have put together pages of some of my rough workings before each of the final illustrations so you can see how I progress.....The letters will illustrate the capital letters of three short fairytale stories within a design that is to decorate a set of mugs.   

The Princess and the Pea: "O"   

Sleeping Beauty: "I"  
(You can see some more of the concepts and rough sketches for this one here)

The Ugly Duckling: "S"


 And here are the three of them together and scaled down:
