Illustration Friday: Small (Now with original)

The first thing I thought of when I saw the theme for Illustration Friday was good things come in small packages. My wife is a good thing (well, great really) and she is small.

Added:

Some of you asked to see the original pencil sketch before I did any Photoshop clean up. The faces in couch as well as the texture came from whatever was on the flip side of the sheet when I scanned it. My wife had been watching TV, but I lost interest in the background once I had completed her and the couch.

Thanks for the feedback.

  1. This is really lovely, Tony! She looks like she's lost in a daydream (maybe thinking of you?)… I really like how you've rendered the different textures and how you've put her partially off the page. What did the background look like before the photoshop?Thanks for your comment this week..BTW, I usually research my non-literary topics to get the facts straight. I actually learned quite a bit about madolins and lutes as I was gathering information for this week's post!
