Mrs. Calabash...


This is a character for a children's book I've written (but probably won't illustrate since I hear they don't like it when first time authors want to also be first time illustrators - besides, I'm not sure it's illustration quality). She was sketched and colored in Open Canvas, and then I did the background and shadow in Photoshop. Comments welcome. She's near and dear to my heart - her story has been in my heart and mind for over 6 years now and I have finally decided to submit (and face rejection head on).

She looks very dear indeed. I would think she belongs right at home in a children's book. Very seriously. That was the first thing I thought when I spied the thumbnail. Best of luck to you, Elle! You're super!!
