Here is an illustration I've been working on for a book written by a 15 years old girl.
I am not a big fan of over rendered illustrations, but I guess I had to do it. I feel it betrays my lack of experience. A good illustrator/painter/drawer would show confidence in every stoke, making the work more spontaneous and simplified with less details. A good composition and color harmony can't be replaced by visible hair on the skin or textured fabric on the clothes.
Anyway, I hope you like it.
