Halloween Character


Another black & white for now ...( I'll try my hardest to get the last three illos watercolored up! ) ... this little Octopus and her sea star sidekick. ( ... this is my youngest daughter's costume this year ... her sister is going as a chinese dragon (I'm thinking Grace Lin's Year of the Rat may have had something to do with that choice) ... I tell you ... rivers, cherry trees, octopi, dragons .... thank goodness their Granny has the patience of a saint!) :)

Have a great Halloween everyone!! :)

What a great costume and drawing! Hope you get a chance to paint it if you want to (wouldn't have to the line art works by itself).

Wow, Michelle, this ill is wonderful! Everything is perfect, the characters, the line work, the details. This is a great portfolio piece!
