So I drew this to maybe go in our baby girl's nursery. I'm still completely on the fence about everything in there- the only thing I know is that I have to make pretty much everything that will go in the room due to money issues.


I used cheap acrylic paint on a cotton ball with water to do the background. Molly and the bubbles are cut out of a separate sheet of paper and I used foam tape to kind of give a 3d effect. Of course you can't see that with crappy photobooth photos...but I'll add some after I put it in a frame Smiley

Done in acrylic paint, prismacolor pencils, prismacolor markers and micron pens.

...and she's missing a leg Wink

This is the first thing I've done like this...I'd love some comments/criticism!
