My daughter has decided that she wants to be a figure skater when she grows up. These cards reflect that new passion.
One neat thing about figure skaters is that thier bodies contort into the strangest poses. One rarely has an opportunity to draw the human form like that, arms and legs stretched and pulled in all sorts of complicated ways. This was quite an exercise for the artist.
I love how the laces on the two skate ACEO turned out. Notice the striped tights - those stripes were painted completely freehand with no do-overs. I'm quite proud of them. LOL.
