Latest Commissioned

I was just commissioned to draw this for someone. They took a picture of their son the moment he said his first word, "Ma-ma" and they wanted to commemorate that. Unfortunately they picture they had to offer was poor quality which turned out to be quite challenging.

The bad and/or small photos are a pain especially if you have poor vision. Great job.

Good work on this one, I know exactly how it is when u got to make a commission using a pour quality photo,,I got one I'm working on now and it is a challenge to make it look nice and clear when u cant see all the details os u have to improvise or use ur experience on filling up gaps.

maybe I'll build my house on your cloud
Here I'm tumbling for you
Stumbling through the work that I have to do
Don't mean to harm you

Thanks Jeff. The client purchased it as a gift for a friend of theirs. They contacted me and told me the recipient was more than happy with it.

I'm still on the fence about it. I think I did the best I could with the picture that was provided.
