Halfway through and a new batch! This batch will be all Hispanic/Latine characters.

Here you have a little girl holding out a handful of seeds. I think she’s supposed to be feeding an animal who’s out of frame, but she could also just be preparing to spread seeds on the ground. I’m not sure which.

The boots and sun hat were particularly fun. I have several characters in this project where I made the pattern on their clothing with this same scattered flower shape brush. Good results, minimal effort. Work smarter, not harder. 🙂

A little latina girl holds out a small handful of seeds.  She's 4-6 years old.  She's wearing bib overalls, a pink t-shirt,  yellow and white striped bucket hat, and pink rubber boots with a white floral pattern. She has long, dark brown, curly hair.

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.

A little Latina girl, age 4-6, stands playing a tambourine.  Her head is turned to the side so we can see that she has a cochlear implant.  She's wearing a t-shirt under a blue and white striped jumper dress, and pink sandals.  Her brown hair is pulled back in a ponytail.

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?
