A couple cartoony doodles

I have something completely different than what I normally share for you today.  Normally when I share my art it is some sort of realistic portrait.  This week I wanted to try something new.

A few months ago my best friend's mom asked me if I could create a logo for the business that she was started.  She plans parties for children, makes gift baskets, and dresses up in character costumes for the parties.  She also does a lot of work for charities and shows up at hospitals dress in costumes just to make kids smile.  

She asked me to create something cartoony.  She had almost an exact idea in her head of what she wanted.  She wanted a girl and boy, to represent her son and daughter.  She also wanted to add a little yellow butterfly as a remembrance of a family member.  The little boy in the drawing was supposed to be holding balloons and the little girl holding a gift basket.  She wanted a "Precious Moments" kind of look to them, and also knew she wanted them to be in pastel colors.

To get the pastel color look I used watercolors and just diluted them a bit.


While my daughter was taking her nap I felt like doodling a little, so I drew a couple Disney Princesses. haha!  Not my best work but I thought I would share anyway!


What do you think???
