Face-a-Day - Her Name Is Pippi Longstocking

I usually hate drawing the same person more than once, but for some reason, I'm not tired of drawing Pippi. I have never drawn anyone more than I've drawn her. Maybe it's because I like her pigtails. I haven't quite gotten her expression down the way I want, so maybe that's why I keep going, too.

Upon watching the show again as an adult, I noticed that the actress is wearing a wig and that her hair underneath is blonde and not red. I read up on the actress online and was sad to discover that she was only paid once for her part in the show. As an adult, she became a medical secretary. She was a charming child actress. It's too bad she wasn't in more shows.
