I was inspired to do this piece via a prompt from SCBWI. The prompt was to illustrate the word "muse" and the idea of a little girl being inspired by science lead me to create this piece.
This was completed after I did the pieces of the princesses earlier this summer, so I was also using the new techniques I discovered while creating those. It's mixed media, digital paint (Manga Studio and some photoshop) over a scan of a black and white watercolor illustration on paper. Hope you enjoy!
