Here’s a snake playing cards. No idea why I drew this, really.
I think this is going to be my holiday card image this year.
And now I’m done. Same character from about age 2 to 18.
Five ages now. I think at 16 she might just be on the swim team.
Now 4 ages. I bet she’s a good swimmer by age 13.
The fourth and final kite-themed image for the SCBWI Postcard Illustration Contest.
I think this is some sort of cone flower.
Okay, so this has been fiddled with, but not that much. I masked out the blossom and upped the vibrance and saturation by 10 each. Then I lowered the saturation for everything else by 40-something.
I really like the striation on the petals between the red and almost-beige parts. I thought it was interesting.
It’s also not a standard tulip. It’s some fancy breed with funny petals, but it’s still a tulip.
