Emma and Dad



My sis-in-law sent this adorable photo today and I just loved the body language between my brother (Emma's Da') and Emma. I HAD to illustrate it! It's now after 2am, and I have an early morning tomorrow, but it was worth it to burn a little midnight oil and finish it up. This is also a good example of how to use a reference photo. Cutting out the extra, and leaving the essence of the idea. So here is the photo of my niece, with the illustration beside it.

I really like the way you brought the life of this wonderful photo into your painting.
As always it is a joy to "watch" you work!

Thanks for including the photo. Seeing what inspired you and then how you broke it down to the essentials is really cool!
