Here is something I’ve wanted to show for a while now! I couldn’t before as I hadn’t given it to the recipient yet, for fear she would see it on my blog and it would ruin the surprise. But she has it now and I can reveal all.
A little background. This was a gift. I wanted to do something original for a friend and as she likes watching anime/cartoons/animated shows I asked her to make a list. And believe me when I say it was lengthy. I picked a few then drew, painted and framed it. Twice. I was clumsy the first time and broke the original frame (which was smaller) and had to change up the layout COMPLETELY. Hence the somewhat unavoidable patchwork I’ve tried to hide as best I could.
I adapted the original character to look like my friend
One of my favorites to draw
Trying to figure out the new layout!
The finished painting all framed up. (Excuse my bed cover.)
How many of the characters can you name?
