This one was fun. He’s cute, throwing that snowball. And drawing winterwear feels so warm and cozy. I enjoyed drawing the little detail on the hat and gloves so much that I went on to decorate several more characters’ winter wear the same way later in the project.

Here’s a girl at a birthday party who uses a wheelchair. I broke out my perspective ruler tools for this one.

This boy is walking with forearm crutches. I was to draw him as if he were walking to school wearing a backpack. I actually kind of like drawing backpacks, for some reason.

Starting a new batch. This round will be 15 illustrations of diverse people with various visible disabilities. From this point on, I feel like the poses the client requestes got more interesting. A little bit more dynamic? I do feel like the characters in the previous batches got short-changed a little, though. They also started incorporating props.
Anyway, the first one’s a little girl with a cochlear implant playing the tambourine.

More beaded jewelry. I hope we didn’t overdo that detail. We may have.

Our first adult. Beaded jewelry is fun to draw. So was the pattern on her sweater. The pose the client initially requested had her looking down at her wristwatch. Then they changed their mind and wanted her waving.

The last child for this batch, with groovy tie-dye.

A boy with longer, shaggy hair. The hair reference the client gave me for this one was a picture of D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai as Bear Smallhill in Reservation dogs.
I’m not really sure why, but some of the characters in this project were supposed to be drawn with them holding up their hand(s) as if holding something. This was a collaborative project, with different artists handing different parts, so that’s not too weird. But I was never told what they were to be holding. Any guesses?
