Des portraits et un peu de fantaisie

I made a little card for my daughter to open on valentine's day, with her portrait on the front. She's not a red head, but red suits her, and she loves those colors.

 
I draw a lot these days, but I don't put everything on line, because it takes way too much time and I'm trying to keep away from the computer as much as I can.

I managed to make a version of the wedding invitation that finally looked like my sister... They liked it, it should be the final version :


I'm doing a lot of portraits and really finding it difficult. I want to work on drawing nature, too, trees, leaves... I'm not patient, so it's going to be a little bit challenging for me...


And because I wanted to do something fun withtout any pressure,  I had fun drawing this little character and his baby goat - a cabri, in French!

Great sketches. Your portraits have so much life in them and the little cabri is adorable with a bit of mischievousness. :)

I'm sure your daughter was really pleased that you did such a wonderful card for her. It's really nice. Great news that you've finished the invitation and they like it (why wouldn't they, anyway?). And the little cabri is just charming! nancy

Colorful, fun, charming all. Quite a Puck-ish look on the boy!
Well done.

I admire your skill in drawing linear portraits. Your simple lines say so much and show much personality in them. Beautiful, beautiful works of art.

Tres belle idée de donner la rousseur a ta fille. Tes portraits sont tres beaux, avec beaucoup d'expression, surtout dans les yeux et le petit personnage avec son cabri trés mignon, parfaite illustration pour un conte.
