Illustration Cutie Pie


Prismacolor colored pencils on warm brown pastel paper.  It is nice to use
toned paper because it becomes your middle tone.  From here you add
your lights and your darks.  I continued my white background strokes
right into the hair to integrate her into the background.  The white
background softened her which helped to add to her youth and innocence. 
As always it is work eliminating all excess lines, because they age a child.
Remember.....less is often more.  You do not have to say it all.
