i hope i'm not in danger of flooding the board with stuff, but i'm on a roll now.

here's another wip just started. i'll not post as many status shots this time, but here's the first steps and a detail of a face i'm very proud of.

thanks for your words of encouragement!

i cannot begin to tell you how many times i redid this sky. it was killing me! (the main reason i voted for clouds in the poll)

but...here he is, for better or worse. i'm finally satisified with the clouds, and will let him rest. but please, please, please let me know if the clouds or the sky look weird, as i'd like to ship this off for printing on canvas at a much larger size as a gift for my mother. :) don't wanna give her something of poor quality, you know.

here's a whole shot, then a couple of details.

i tried to attach a progressive animated gif, but it didn't work. (less than 100k, too.)

ah, well. :)

I think this is wonderful Amanda! You did a good job with the clouds too. They remind me of what I think of when I hear the phrase "big sky" You're really getting good with this kind of work. Your mom should be very happy with her gift!

Congrats,
Julie

Amanda, wow! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I am assuming that you did this entire sketch from scratch (?). That's what earned you the WOW! Excellent job of shading too! Glad to see you are making good use of your talents.

Show us more!

thanks, everybody! :)

jorge, i guess he looks a bit like john baron...it's probably that tilt to the head, since my kid seems like he's always at a slight angle. just like his ole' mom, i guess. :D

thanks for the wow, phyllis! glad to see you around here! :)
