Magic Wand

I have this sketch, an idea for a Christmas card. I had not done much with it, but this week's theme made me try a color version. It's hard sometimes to work the light and dark areas, and in this case I think I like what I did with the skirt, but not so much with the sweater.

Anyway, it was good to finally work some color into it and maybe I'll finish it up -- not surprisingly, there's supposed to be a beagle on this illustration as well :-)

She looks like she is ready to wheeled the that magic wand. Really cute and sweet illustration. I like the character. She looks like she's up to something good. Great Illustration!

I really like the simplicity and how the colors work to make the simplicity . . . work.

I like both the skirt & the sweater! The star/wand makes her so happy--with weather in the upper 90's here, it's nice to think of cold weather & a cuddly sweater!

There's nothing more magical than Christmas, so this totally works. I love the snowflake on her sweater.
