I just thought I would post how my story is coming along and some of the new characters I have created for it. This is only the first draft so it is far from done but I would love to know what you think of it. Thanks for the inspiration!
I had so much fun creating this character! I have never done one before but you made it so simple. This little cowgirl is my daughter Sadie when she was about 6 but she is also me. I was born a cowgirl and I wished on every single candle on every single cake that I could have a horse. My wish didn't come true so I bought one for Sadie and she became a world champion before it was all over. Somewhere along the line I started riding and today I own and show cutting horses. I created this character because I want to illustrate a book for little girls called "This Ain't my First Rodeo". Creating this character made me believe that I can really do it!
I still have a few issues that I am kind of stuck on. The hands don't look right to me and the one on her hip isn't really holding the rope. Also, I don't like the teeth. Any suggestions? I also still need to work on the presentation but I have some ideas for that and I will work on it tomorrow.
Thanks so much - this is the best thing I have ever created!!!
As you can see, I have made some progress on this little cowgirl and on her story. I refined the hair and the hands but I am still working on those flat boots. I have also created her brother, Dally and her older sister Hannah.
I would love to send you the story outline but I'm not sure if this is the place for that. Should I send you an email or just copy and paste it here? I'm really excited to hear your comments!
