I had a nagging feeling I forgot to post here yesterday, but didn’t really care enough to double-check until today. I was actually busy with art — finishing up some commissioned pieces and doing this illustration. It’s for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators‘ monthly challenge prompt for October – “enchanted.” I based my piece on a famous “fox maiden” of Chinese myth.
There’s no fame, glory, or reward for doing the challenge. There are so many entries, you’d be lucky if anyone actually looks at your piece (I’d bet money I get more views posting on Instagram). I do it purely for my own practice.
This was done with ink (Pentel Brush Pen) and Bruynzeel watercolor pencils on Strathmore multimedia sketchbook (the one Laura is so fond of).
