Day 18: A Marshmallow World This image is one I’ve been planning for a long time.  I had a preliminary sketch of this since last year, with only a few girls to try out for the slot, and in the end, I didn’t have time to do it last year.  I nearly didn’t have time this year, with all the other slots filling up.  I knew I needed time to work out the perspective and blocking to make it work, since its a difficult pose.  So Aina made the cut since I knew I wanted a cute girl for the cute pose, and someone with good flowy hair.  This image is much closer to her color intention, which sadly I wasn’t able to do for her appearance in the 12 Tracks project this year, with her golden honey colored hair, rather than just brown.  Her sweater is also a little more deep in color, but my markers have trouble scanning for that.  In spite of all that, I’m happy to finally be able to do the image to my satisfaction.
