She is ADORABLE! What a beautiful outfit she's in, too! Well done!!
charming lovely character
love the expression. She is soo cute :)
I like it so much. Please, tell me: you´ve used pencil lines and digital shadows, I presume, but the backgroung, is it digital too over the paper texture?
Hi Tomas - yes, I've used a mixture of pencil lines and digital colour and shadows, but the background is done using scanned-in pieces of my watercolour washes, (I've made a little collection of different coloured washes on various papers to choose from) which I then layer and adjust in photoshop until I get the right colour and texture! (Sorry, you asked me that before on another post didn't you? And I forgot to answer -apologies!)
This is fantastic! Really well drawn Mary! :)
