the fastest method of sourcing children's illustrators online
As a portrait drawler, I try to make the portraits look, and tell a story about the people. I try to make people ask questions about the portrait. What are the peoples story?
This was an Idea for the one child in a book I illustrated. The little girl has a nice set of clothing that would fit the age range of 10-13. I had given the Author this idea for the little girl, and she liked it. I worked on putting the little girl in different places to see if her attire would work for the whole story. With no changes, we stayed with her as the ideal picture for the illustrations.
In this painting, I was trying to gain the look, that the arm was heavy. With this painting, everything seemed to work out the way that I wanted it to, which was great for this. This painting took about an hour and a half, with just some small adjustments after that time.
