Drawings 5 and 6

Above is the Christmas present I drew for my daughter A.C. Her cats are her life!

I have killed two birds with one stone here, or rather four birds with two stones, because below is the portrait of my step-granddaughter that I did for her mom. These drawings also count toward my goal 65 (Make Christmas presents for everybody in the family). The jpg of the portrait came out rather rough. The actual rendering is much softer and more subtle. It was so subtle we had to use color "enhancing" options to get it to show up at all, which is what makes it look more cartoonish than it actually is.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

Cartoonish is not a very good description. I think all are rather lifelike. I'm printing Olivia's pic for my office and everyone I know there will say "who did that!"

You are the best!

I am having such fun drawing again. I can't believe I haven't done anything with it for so long. I would never have done it if I hadn't started the 100/1001 project!
