Illustration Friday: Feet

Alison's story has a happy ending! Yes, she lands on her *feet*:



Weeks ago I posted part 1, Alison rocking in her chair, and asked whether she would fall, or gracefully rock back into place:
Meet Alison. Alison doesn't understand some of the things big people say. And when she doesn't understand, she just giggles.



Most of you wanted her to crash, yet survive. Yes, Alison is a rock star and acrobat at heart. Thank you everyone for playing along...I really enjoyed reading all the stories!

Alison part 2 was drawn in sepia ink. I am currently thinking about what to do with her next.

What a great sequence! I like that Alison has saved herself so gracefully. She looks like she could star ina martial arts movie!

ha! funny you say that: in one of my sketches i had her jumping in the air doing a karate kick!

but i ended up going with a cartwheel instead because i wanted to see what would happen to her curls if i turned her upside down...

and now i'm oh so tempted to color her in!

what a great action scene, i do love the way her curls bounce... and such a satisfied look on her face at the end... i also apreciate the sequence of events going from right to left...

princess pepper cloud (great name!)...glad to hear your comment about the direction i took her in...one of my last thoughts was to flip her, but then I decided to keep her falling in the direction she was originally going.

oh, and making her curls squash and bounce was fun.
