I started sketching an idea I had for an SCBWI contest. It came to me very slowly...in fact too slowly. I still have the fantastic idea, part of which you can see to the left, but I'm trying new techniques, and that leaves no room for time. I could have rushed the piece, but I inevitably would have messed up and been ticked off about the whole thing. I ended up not submitting to the contest. Oh well, I can look forward to a great piece in my portfolio.
I decided that I would take one of the characters from my SCBWI piece and transfer them to a very simple illustration. I don't want to give myself permission to say "It's okay if you miss an I-Fri, no biggie." I'm practicing with deadlines, and if I can't handle I-Fri, I need to tighten the belt. (Although things like, my day job do occasionally interfere and that can't be helped!)
Here they are, two lady bears enjoying a tete-a-tea! I'm not very fond of it, but it gets the job done. You know, now that I'm looking at them...these girls remind me of gummy bears.
