Bragging on Neo some more

It's meant to display on a black background which explains the blocking. It's her hippocampus character again, based on the Peophin from Neopets. Genre loves the sea, loves clubbing and dancing, and has a horrible sense of direction on land.

(To walk on land, Genre has to bind her webbed feet.)

I don't quite know what to do with this kid. She's OBVIOUSLY talented, and I can't think of a way to genuinely support her talents during the school year. Mommy guilt.

Neo is talented. Just keep encouraging her, and telling her honestly what you think of her work. If it really matters to her, she'll find a way to make time for her art, so as long as you're not throwing up roadblocks, you are supporting her talents.

She's terrific. What medium is this? I love the colors.

I never could get Jake interested in art. By about six or seven, he would only do what he absolutely had to do at school. Oh, well.

This is a pencil sketch, scanned into Photoshop, and then worked on from there. Every color or portion of the drawing has its own layer. Then she burns and dodges to manipulate colors and shadows. She hasn't started working with textures as of yet. But she's intrigued.

So I guess the medium is purely digital.

I've never mastered layers. All these years of futzing around with these programs, and I'm still a rank amateur :)

Very cool. Has she checked out the Tokyopop website and perhaps posted there? I know they have a lot of people post artwork there.
