I find it quite amusing how inspiration can strike when you least expect it.
I'm currently in Texas visiting family. I was playing dress up with my niece, (who is obsessed with fairies like me). She is the most remarkable girl. I love her dearly. I took out my camera and took her picture. I'm going to use it as a reference. I've never tried a portrait, but I may save this picture for when I do.
Later in the evening I was chatting with my best friend. I sat at the computer doodling on a spiral notebook while we chatted. When we were finished, I looked down and saw that I had started a little elf girl and, for once, I hadn't toiled over the facial features. So I went ahead and finished her. I posted the finished product here in my gallery (excuse the lines lol). Hands and feet are so alien to me. I can see it in my head, but when I put it to paper, something goes horribly wrong. I guess that's something I'll need to work on. For this picture I conveniently placed her arms behind her back. Hahahaha
Thank you all for the warm welcomes and friend requests. I look forward to getting to know you all.
