A quick post and one that happens to fit both group prompts this week - love when that happens. Thought I'd share a WIP I'm working on - part of a small series of drawings based on some of my favorite storybook characters, Alice in Wonderland being at the top of my list.
I joined an online group awhile back with the intent of starting a portfolio of children's art so I'd have some work to submit for consideration. However, I will need to show characters in a variety of poses and situations, so I've still got some work ahead of me before I start doing that....
'Alice', color pencil, digitally enhanced
When a character starts to unfold at my drawing board, much like the story itself progesses, I find that it sometimes takes on a life of it's own - no matter what 'look' I had in mind when I start it.
I'm still trying to decide what to bring into the background at least for now, however I may just leave each character as a single portrait so that a simple oval mat can be placed over them before framing.
Have a great weekend y'all!
thank you for 10 years!!
