Blocks - the colored piece

This is another portfolio piece for my children's illustration portfolio.  I'm not sure if this is done or not, but I do know I need to stop fussing with it for a while.  That's the problem with coloring digitally - I can tweak it infinitely to barely noticeable effect.

I did achieve a few things I wanted to include in my portfolio - unusual point of view, lots of negative space, and a strong lighting source.

Edit: I think I'm finally done tweaking this one, and here's the finished illustration.

Princess character studies

Finished off these princess character studies in watercolor and pencil.

Princess painting experiment

This is a color experiment that I'm not quite sure about.  I like a lot of the elements separately, just not sure they are working well together.

Cat spot illustration

I rather like how this little cat spot illustration came out.

Bad Governess

This is a sketch for a potential portfolio piece.  Yes, that is a cat dragging off a baby.  What of it?

Self assignment: POV and negative space

Gave myself an assignment to draw something from an unusual point of view, with lots of white space.
