Our first one in this batch with a larger body type. Also, with an intentionally undefined gender identity. My daughter has this style of haircut. This is the last one in this batch in the 7-9 age range.

Here’s our first one with glasses in this batch. And, I think, the first one wearing a cammo print in the project.

This one’s a girly-girl wearing a cute multi-colored heart print overalls with a pink t-shirt.

This child is wearing a traditional Hawaiian shirt with a tropical leaves print. I originally made the print in green, but the client had me change it to purple.

A fun tie-dye shirt over sweatpants.

I gave this girl a traditional floral print on her dress. I took way longer than I should have to get the print just right, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

One subtle change that the client made in this batch was to have me give many of the dark-eyed characters colored irises. It’s slightly faster just to color the irises and pupils both black, and honestly it isn’t that noticeable. (When you’re doing 150 characters on a tight schedule, even little time-savers add up.) But the client did notice about halfway through this batch and asked me to change it going forward. Since they didn’t have me go back and change the previous batch, in order to preserve consistency, I colored the irises of some of the dark-eyed characters brown, and some black. Later images with black characters (there are more coming up) will have brown irises, just to balance out all the black irises I used before.
But, back to today’s post. This guy’s waving, or maybe raising his hand to answer a question? I gave him a dinosaur t-shirt as an interesting detail. Not really Christmassy, I’ll admit, but that’s the one that fell on today.

Woops, skipped a day. Should have posted this yesterday.
We’re moving on to the second batch of this large project. This batch contains 15 different Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. They’re all in warm-weather clothing.
This one is a girl, aged 4-6. She looks happy, doesn’t she?
