  7. Your sketches are great. I've been thinking I need to draw some more challenging things. On Sunday, I was explaining to my sister that it is not easy to keep a character's image consistant throughout a book. It looks like you can meet that challenge.

  9. Your expression sketches are wonderful! I love the range of emotions that you are portraying. The surprised little girl in pig-tails is a favorite of mine. Really wonderful work.

  11. You are so right. Not an easy thing, but you make it look easy . This is such a great exercise and your little child is not only cute but consistent.

    (You can go right ahead and quit your day job... these are wonderful~)

  12. Niiiiice! Great character study Kate. I could spend all day working up character expressions, or poses.

    I like the look of your pencil work lately. I think your on the right track trying to nail down your style.
