So... here's my tribute to Ratatouille. It's my favorite Pixar movie and so i'm paying homage to a character who i LOVE, Linguini. A lot of people found him annoying (enos) but i found his charm to be like that of the crushes I had in middle school on weird nerdy boys... which seems fitting since this drawing started as a doodle while talking on the phone like that of a 13 year old girl. I guess you could say he's my cartoon crush.

Here's the new version i did. the older girl was a bit off but i couldn't tell until the client gave me some more pictures... Sometimes it takes a couple of goes to make it right. :) I think she turned out a lot better. I also added a couple of extras to give it a more finished feel.

A client of mine had me make this for her friend who tragically lost her children in a car wreck after getting hit by a semi. This story really touched my heart and i couldn't turn down doing a portrait even though i'd never done one in color before. This is such a sad story. But thankfully the woman has been blessed with triplets and is due in a few months i believe. I'm glad i could do this for her.

I was just thinking about body builders... women body builders in particular... Every time i see them on tv i can't help but watch with my mouth ajar at the sheer manliness of their bodies... it's like watching a car wreck happen... you have to watch. They really freak me out. It's like someone took a ken doll and put barbies head on... okay maybe not barbie.. she's too pretty... let's say skipper...or maybe a brat's doll head.
