Illustration Friday: Grow

Illustration Friday: Grow
Graphite pencil with a sepia colored pencil overlay
For this week's theme of "grow", I automatically thought of my kids. I decided to draw a picture from a photo of my kids when they were younger. I always loved this one. I think the drawing looks much better than the uploaded image. For some reason I couldn't get the coloring to look the same on the computer. The real photo was done in sepia tones, so I drew this picture in graphite pencil and then lightly colored over the top with a colored pencil to give it that sepia tone look.

Illustration Friday: Open

Illustgration Friday: Open
Graphite Pencil and Colored Pencil
This week's theme was "Open". I drew this picture from an old photograph of my daughter when she was a baby. I love seeing such a sweet little yawn.
It started out as a graphite pencil drawing. I then added a little colored pencil over the top to give it that feeling of an old colorized photo.
