Ode to Mustard Seed

A week has passed since I last posted here and now I'm back! :)  This is the newest work I did the other day, took me less than one day to finish it. I was able to buy a Winsor & Newton Ink - Nut Brown color and I really love it!  I love the old or classic effect it gives on the illustration.    

I call this new work "Ode to Mustard Seed", he is one of the four faeries in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Forgive me for the quality of the image, I just took a quick snap of the illustration :S

This is the first of four illustrations I am doing which I insist on calling "An Ode to the Four Faeries".  The next one that I am doodling with is Peaseblossom.  Will be posting it very very soon.

Finally! Packed and Delivered.

After a month of painting and mulling constantly over the piece if it's good enough or not,  finally it's finished!  And I am so happy because my client was extremely pleased with the result.  I cannot forget the kind words she told me as she beams while looking at the portraits of her daughters ..."This is more that I expected and they are priceless!" and gave me a warm hug afterwards. 

This made my day because I made somebody happy with my work and I think that is the greatest reward you could ever receive when doing these kind of stuff.

In Progress!

This is an update of the second portrait, just got a week left before I give it to the client! Jitters!!! I had a bit of a difficulty painting her, I don't know she's a pretty little girl but there are times it's just hard for me to capture that small detail of the eyes or the expression of the I didn't paint for a couple of days because I might ruin the whole thing.  I gave myself a break from it and just started painting yesterday and so far I love the result. I plan to paint her dress in light shade of orange and with less detail so her face and the little wings would stand out.  Now I would be cramming before the week ends :S
