a portrait of Madeline for my personal challenge/project: [link]

i've found that it is frustratingly hard to find a decent picture of Madeline online. i know i used to have almost all the books...but i don't know where they are D:

note to self: use watercolor paper when using watercolors.

hand drawn with pencil, colored pencil, and watercolor scanned/edited with adobe elements

Madeline: *singing her self-titled theme song along with the other 11 girls*
Eddy: *tapping his foot to the rhythm* I like this song.  
Ed: *outright dancing* I'm skipping to my Lou, guys!  
Me: *meditating*

I USED TO LOVE MADELINE WHEN I WAS LITTLE ! she is the best.
i love the colours, and the way you did her hair. You should be a children's book illustrator.
