I've just learned about Illustration Friday.com from some friends. I really think its an awesome idea. This is for the last topic, the next is called "intricate." I started with a pen drawing on illustration board.
I took a quick picture of it (thus the blurriness) and then did some color comps. in photo shop.
Mike liked the orange and blue, and so do I, but it is a color combination I use often. So I wanted to try something new.I finally went with the green and brunette because I don't think brunette little girls are represented enough. It seems to be mostly little blond girls. Don't get me wrong I was a blond little girl myself. I just wasn't in the mood.
I like the purple and bluish/black hair. It reminds me of "Coraline."
