All dolled up

Here's a new commission I did recently for Sketchbook Pro. I've been kinda selective about jobs recently but I loved doing this one because they let me do anything I wanted! My initial idea for this piece was a dark-ish little girl with a pet creature that she "dolls up" in the way that normal girls might dress up a cat or a puppy.

I recorded the process of the entire painting and did a time lapse while talking over top of it. This is a video podcast about my experiences as an artist and the lessons I've learned that will hopefully help other artists achieve their goals.

Reminds me a lot of an animated video on YouTube involving a little girl summoning demon to get revenge on another girl at her school.

I've seen some of Bobby's podcasts before. Very inspirational. And I hope work on Alice in wonderland is fun and going well. I think the tones and lighting on the creature in this painting are exceptionally brilliant, especially around his face. Really nicely worked.

Actually judging from the thumbnail and title, I thought the leash was on the little girl, and the monster was holding it :D

Nice artwork!
