I just put the finishing sparkles on a brand new personal piece. This one was created for the October 2015 SCBWI Draw This challenge, the theme: Enchanted. This theme meshed nicely with my desire to create a fall-themed illustration for fun and promotion. I was going for something glowing and magical that would fit well into my middle grade fantasy portfolio. In this I challenged myself to create a multi-figure composition with clear leading lines for the viewer.
I have the awesome ladies of my critique groups to thank for the way this one shaped up at the end! You all are wonderful!
