Dragon meets Boy – story to be continued …

My daughter was reading to me from Harry Potter yesterday, and while listening to the very exciting story, I did a pen sketch of her sitting on the lounge (you may think she spends a lot of time on the lounge; truly she doesn’t :D – but I will happily grab any opportunity to draw my children when they are ‘semi-still’).

So.. here’s the sketch – scanned from my sketchbook (it’s one of my favourite sketchbooks – each page opens ‘flat’¬†allowing¬†you to draw across both sides):

And here’s what she looks like after painting the scanned drawing in Photoshop:

Art to me, is as much about understanding life and its mysteries, as it is about telling stories to connect with the world ...
