Welcome our new addition to the family, Mika.
I start with a rough sketch, searching for the best loving family pose.
I learn each character assets from the photos I get, taking into consideration all the details and preferences of the client.
Usually, I throw in some flowers to complement the composition.
Then, I redraw the portrait with a fine, cleaner and accurate line and ask for the client’s feedback.
I choose a nice color palette, taking into account any requests from the client.
Finally, I add depth, shadows, texture and some fairy dust.
Yay! The family portrait is ready to be printed!
Sharing my workflow on this cute family portrait. Eleanor wanted to put her practice as a fitness trainer into the illustration, which was a very fun task for me!
She is growing so fast, it’s time for an updated family portrait!
In our portrait all of us are smiling , even the cat, I look beautiful than ever and the color palette suits my home perfectly.
I started this personal project when my baby girl was a month old, as a creative outlet from my chaotic day, not knowing it would become a way to illustrate our journey.
The rule was: keep it simple, quick & fun.
It’s been a year now and I’m really happy I took the time to treasure those precious moments as a future gift for my daughter.
