ATCs: Baby Girl

I just finished this card I did for a monthly trade on  We’re assigned a partner and make a card they might like based on information they provide in a profile.  This drawing is of my partner’s granddaughter.

I think I did okay here.  I was trying to capture a sense of innocence in the eyes.  It’s hard to do.  When I’ve tried before the poor kids in the drawings just look surprised or startled.

Working on these cards really helps me sort out drawing problems.  The white of the paper is so less intimidating when it’s the size of a baseball card, and I find that I don’t feel so bad about chucking a piece or “wasting” media when I’m working on them.

What I love the most is the feedback that I get from the people I trade with.  It feels so good to know that you’ve made something that people cherish.
