this is ava in pigtails...


this is another in-progress piece that i wanted to share, i'm painting a photo of my best friend brittany's baby girl ava, in pigtails! i have been dying for ava to have long enough hair for pigtails since she was born, so i adore this photo of her, and really wanted to capture that little-kid feeling, with bright primary color accents, a little more whimsical brushstrokes, with abstract colors. it's not done yet, but i'm pretty pleased with how it's turning out. figured i'd share!

here's a better little close-up of what i've got so far...

this is soooo five years ago

while overhauling and cleaning my bedroom this week (whilst not on my deathbed,) i found my sketchbook from 2006 - the one with the alien chick in it! i was excited. and since i got my scanner/printer/copier set up finally (it was a christmas present. it's embarrassing that it took this long) i can share a few of them! lucky you. here you go...
