Working on sketching kids....instead of animals. These have been forwarded to my agent. She's going to be working with me to create some nice pieces that include kids. I "think" in animals so these were challenging...I felt stiff drawing them and feel like they may look a bit stiff. Sigh. I'll have to keep at it to loosen up. I get all wrapped up in what shape the head should be, or how about those arms? Should they be thick or stringy? Oh, what a mess the details make of my brain! Once we get some worked out I'll be taking them to color. I think I may carve out time to experiment a little with line and such. Trying to come up with more ways to show movement. Movement in a piece is beautiful. Anyhow, scroll down for Monkey Boy and his puzzled pet, my IF entry.
Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Nothing cuter than big puffy cheeks on sweet kids. Especially Monkey Cheeks!
I adore children’s illustration and spend my time drawing and painting. I especially enjoy creating characters. After a bit of sketching they seem to take on a life of their own and are kind enough to let me get to know them.
