One of my latest works. Not completely happy with it. Doesn't do my nieces justice. Lili is the one on the right and the inspiration for the character below.
Medium: pencil, photoshop.
Lili, last year, kept asking me why I never did any paintings of her. The reason why was because she would never sit still long enough to let me sketch her or I didn't have any photos good enough to turn into paintings. So I gathered a bunch of photos of her together and made sketch after sketch until I came up with this character. Lili, besides being overwhelmingly cute (if only you could hear her talk!) and so hilarious that I like to think she might have been Lucille Ball in her last life. But she can also be shy and thoughtful and it's that side of her I wanted to capture in my design.
