I love looking at your illustrations, Mardi.
Ha ha! Peet better learn how to operate that thing - FAST!!! Adorable as always, Mardi!
I think the FINAL with no smile is much stronger than the prelims WITH smile. But I have to say that, smile aside, I really like the pencil quite a bit more here than the digital variations; there's a gesture and immediacy that gets a bit lost in the later layer-ings.(her smile might actually be there in the FINAL, but it's hidden, but expression-wise the blank look is better story-telling).
