I mean truly; there is not one part of this piece that I don't absolutely love.
It all just came together and worked out so well. I think it's one of my better works.
I was able to get the; "awe so cute" look with only a single eye, able to angle the hands and the heads to show details in the whole image, and I was able to fit big fluffy tails on the page because honestly I was beginning to run out of room on the paper by that point.
I love travel purse sized sketchbooks, but I tend to draw really big. So many pages in my notebook are fully covered but only with half a face, hair, or body. I have all kinds of fun pieces but they appear incomplete. I love them though. For now I'll keep them in my someday I'll know just how to use these file.
Until that time gets here, I'll just have to share my more complete creations with my wonderful crafting community.
The line art is complete, but I do not have a colored example ready yet. I'm hoping in the next day or two, but as you moms of toddlers know...who knows when I'll be able to sit down and color without a set of little hands helping me :) I've learned to print several out for him to color. We'll stretch out on the floor or at the kitchen table and create together. I prepick out all of my markers and try to keep them very close to me because he is a magnificent destroyer. Doesn't ever try, it's just a natural talent; lol. For him I have a whole array of crayola markers, crayons, colored pencils, watercolors, and lots of hope that they will entertain him for a bit.
A tip for moms of young artist: I've found that white paper crafting card stock paper is fantastic for young ones. Most craft stores sell packs of it for $2 - $3 so it's fairly inexpensive. Children's finger paint, watercolors, and markers don't bleed through it which is such a wonderful thing to have less clean up, and pens or pencils take a lot of pressure to puncture through it. I have lots of paper floating around my house, and it is a really good fit for us. Both for price and strength.
