"Pensimiento de un Vida"

Its been almost 3 weeks since my graduation from Ringling, I have been applying to get my Masters at U.M. and getting a job. But its been pretty hard, even to freelance has been a epic battle, but I wanted to get back into things before I got cold. So I decided to go more personal and do an illustration that was dear to me.

Everything on this piece was done reverse, I first did the baby and the girl with gouache then I painted the background with two opposing colors representing the pros and cons. Then some simple designs that represented it that went along with some text and other symbols done in FABER-CASTELL markers. Then a retouch of lighter color of gouache around the characters, then I painted the hair in a thin layer of Mars Black acrylic paint. It took me 2 nights from start to finish, I gave myself a deadline so it was pretty fun... Thanks for reading.
