My own

Hello (waving) I have something rather special to share today. it is an image i drew and coloured all by myself. No digital or rubber stamp. Just plain old greylead pencil and an eraser then got to work with colouring pencils.
She starts off a bit plain and ordinary but I can imagine how she is going to turn out once i get my pencils to work so I have tried not to add too much detail

I have water coloured in a background of cloud/sky with inktense pencils as well as a base colour for her hair which i have then started here colouring with polychromos.

She is getting skin!! I have made a nose from cinnamon and light flesh

Here I have coloured her eyes but as you can see the eye on the left is a bit well lets say droopy...bring in the eraser!

Tada! all fixed..well as good as i could get :)

And here she is all trimmed and framed. She is 5" x 7" and turned out pretty much as I had imagined :)
This drawing is going to a school in Laverton, Victoria for a fundraising auction. if you happen to be in the are the auction is being held on the 11th of september. All the details can be found via this>> link
