La gran Sofia (Sofia the great)

La gran Sofia (Sofia the great) - student project

this one is based on my little daughter, even though she is only 3 years old, she acts like a 6 years old boy.

her little body is not a representation of her inner strength and is always in the look of a challenge to test it.

but at first some warming up: doing simple shapes to warm up in a cold winter gave me this image...

then i started to think about that little girl that was to small to play basketball but had a determination like no one.

selected the one that i thought showed the determination the most. and did some light and shadows test

and some refinement... 

maybe the eyes way bigger...

and some color... i thought purple would be a nice contrast to the orange of the ball and create this energetic powerful look for her..
