I am Colin (again)


I wasn't happy with this illustration I made a few months back, so I decided to fix it up a bit. It can be so useful to come back to something after some time apart, especially personal work like this, created purely for the experimentation and enjoyment of it. I completely redrew Mary and now I'm more happy with it. Her shapes needed to be simplified, but now I feel like she doesn't sit quite right with Colin. Perhaps I'll tweak him too soon.

The image shows a scene from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a book a thoroughly recommend for all ages :)
