portraits

I recently made these two portraits of my friends daughters. My friend commissioned them from me as a surprise and christmas gift for her two kids. It was such an honor to have the opportunity to portray the two girls that I have known since they were born. Two girls with such different personalities.

One whos zodiac sign is the Sagittarius, a lover of nature and freedom, more introvert, truthful, generous and sincere.
The second the Leo, who is extrovert, strong willed and self confident.

These facts and some photo material for reference pretty much set me off to a good start, and I just kept coming up with more details to add to the portraits. These illustrations actually "grew" from the middle on out.

I love these kinds of projects where the subject is chosen but the way I handle it is left to me to decide. After all I am a freedom-loving sagittarius myself...
