Greetings! I hope everyone’s lockdown life is proving to be a magical lark full of daydreaming and unblighted by the less fun parts of a pandemic. I’ve been an SVS member for many, many years and have always devoured whatever the guys put out - beginning with Third Thursday and now the podcast. I’m pretty sure this is my first time posting to the forum though! I recently completed my last illustration for a series of greeting cards and am now looking to spend the foreseeable future building my portfolio so thought I’d have a crack at the Ink Fairy prompt.
As you can see, I’ve gotten up to the thumbnail stage. I spent a little longer on them than usual to try to make them more legible for other people - not sure sure how successful I’ve been but I guess we’ll see!
The main thing you probably need to know is that my illustration will be a portrait of Ellie. I want to illustrate her thorough preparedness, her many failed attempts to date, and her determination. I’m not sure I’m drawn to any thumbnail in particular so I’m very interested in hearing everybody else’s opinions!
