Original Artwork is Prisma Colored Pencil on Canson Drawing paper
Though i’ve done some fantasy portraits for my own pleasure, this was the first comissioned portrait that I have done. (And i’m quite pleased with the outcome, I think I should do more!) One of my co-workers has a daughter that’s my age with a 10 month old daughter, Abbigail. Abby is the cutest little thing in the world! The first time i saw her, I said “You know, she looks just like a little elf or a pixie!” She’s got these pointed eyebrows and pointed ears and this chubby little pink face. Of course, after I mentioned this, EVERYONE else started saying “You know, she DOES look like an elf!” So my co-worker asked if I could draw her as an elf so that she could give it to her daughter and son-in-law as a Christmas gift. She told me that I could do whatever I wanted witht the picture, in whatever medium at whatever size. Originally, I was going to make her a Christmas Elf, but the preliminary sketches just didn’t look right and the more I saw Abby, the more I thought she needed to be a pink faery! Abby’s mom is REALLY into stars too, so I put them all over Abby’s outfit and in the background. This was a blast to make and I can’t WAIT to hear how it’s received on christmas morning.
