Here’s to the little child in all of us! 🙂
I have to say, I had a BALL doing this illustration for you this week. Some weeks it is hard to get started, so after a weekend of fighting what I thought would be the ‘cold that would kill me’ it was such a breath of fresh air sitting down and seeing my assignment for the week! I loved working with the lighting (like I always do) yet this week I tried a more ‘painterly’ approach. I felt that it was not important what was behind the little girl (let’s call her Tess) and wanted your attention only on Tess and her soon, new BFF. 🙂 I felt the painterly look helped to allude a background without using detail yet allowed a bit of interest so if your eye looked at the background you didn’t find yourself snoring. Hope you are all having a spectacular week and are all germ free. After all, that’s the way to roll!
