This is a sketch I did for a piece of character development work for an OEM book. I based it on Laura's neice, Annie. I thought it was cute so I coloured it up a little. It's kinda cute I thought. So here's the pencil and the colour.

Sweet drawing! I like the pose and motion blurry snow. All I can see happening is a giant Don Hertzfeldt like snow flake slamming into her. 'My lip is bleeding'!
Can you tell I haven't had much sleep?!
Oh yeah, don't forget the Gorillaz playing in the background. (as in the band but you know the other kind are cool too!) Power to the Simians!

The snow is just a large brush in PS set to 30% opacity and then just dab the white on, it works purdy well.

Glad yiz like it!

A kids book, Margret? I've had it in mind for a while. Actually there's a writer from London ON who wants to do one, but I haven't had a block free in my schedule yet. I could add it to my sketch a day and do it that way....hmmmm.

As for my own ideas...I have one. It's kind of fun, but I don't know how well it would work.
