"Let's go fly a kite!
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite,
and send it soaring...."
I have to stop there, 'cos another line and I'll end up being charged for royalties.
A pretty cutesy commission I paid
to draw for me, of my anime forms of Lisa and Maggie Simpson (see my scraps for character sheet images of them both), out flying a kite on Springfield one fine early summer afternoon.
I chose to make Maggie older so that Lisa could have a playmate, someone who saw the world through a similar set of eyes to herself and wouldn't mock Lisa's sources of pleasure. So there are similarities between Lisa and Maggie, not only in looks but also a bit in personalities (though that's difficult to convey in a still pic). But they certainly look similar, with Maggie (I place her at being about 6 or 7yo) dressing like her fave big sis, styling her hair the same, the same style shoes, even the pearls...except Maggie wears them as an anklet instead, for a small bit of variation.
And of course, a similar hair colour, though Maggie's is just a shade more red.
I like to think that, any moment now, Maggie's gonna lower her hands and start playfully rib-tickling Lisa until she almost lets go of the kite. She just looks like the kind of playfully mischevious girl who might, y'know?
