Gosh, is she ever adorable -- if you have a book about her out by the time I have a little girl, I think I'll be buying it! :D

I love the way you colored her clothes -- so bright and colorful and pure little girl. (If she was just a tad bit "wilder" she'd remind me of my boss's daughter! LOL!)

Thankyou! =)
One day I will have books. *nod* I'm doing school workbooks at the moment, that's a step in the right direction, right? =D

I had such trouble deciding which colours to dress her in – if you visit the blog post in the description you'll see the trials I went through – so I'm so glad you think they work so well. =)

Yup yup!

I did visit the blog to see the story of her outfit, and enjoyed it very much! I love getting to see little inside glimpses into how the creative process works for someone else. It's fascinating! :D

Strange, she looks older in the cross-legged-with-giraffe image than the other images. I love the bath tub one though, lol

Yes, I know. I didn't realise until I'd finished inking, I think.
=) Thankyou!

Thankyou so much, and thanks for the :+fav: too! =)

From all these small vignettes I can almost sense her personality. The colors are beautiful. Also, the knowledge that this was done traditionally makes it that much more awesome. :D :+fav:

Well, that was the idea. =D
I frequently work traditionally – I like to use mixed media, and have a lot of fun with it.
Thanks for the :+fav: =) I'm glad you like it!
