This one was the same client, this time requesting an image of her daughter in an Alice in Wonderland themed image with all her pets around her. :) I thought it would be a fun touch to make all the animals actual characters from the story!
After the fantastically spectacular fail with the original in marker, I attempted to use acrylics. It worked out MUCH better this time. Though there are definitely some things I would do differently next time.
The best part is that my friend loved it! So worth all the frustration!
I can assure you all that I've been working like crazy the last month, despite not posting!! Unfortunately, everything I've done has been Christmas commissions, so I can't post anything yet! However, I exchanged gifts with one of my close friends, so I can show you what I made her!
This is the prototype version of what I gave her. He's about 2" tall or so. He's one of those custom vinyl figures! I'm kind of addicted to making them haha. This particular one makes me massively sad because, when I used my sealer on him, the ink ran (the photos are pre-sealing).. not terribly bad but still enough for me to not be okay with giving it as a gift. But I still love him, so I'm happy to have him on my desk!
