This week's illu challenge by Dorothea

Sketch for the cover of the childrensbook "The little fir tree" of Hans Christan Andersen. The characters are very difficult for me to draw. I use and learn to love the Kyle T. Webster brushes for Photoshop.

This week's art challenge *YARN* by Dorothea

Hello my dearest sketchbook
Hello my dearest sketchbook
I hate it to be sick on vacations. The sore throat is still there and I'm coughing a lot. So I went to the doctor. There in the waiting room I developed Auntie Hilda, the tea drinking octopus. She will be part of the illustration for this week's topic yarn.
