Easter Hunt Kid

Pencils for a figure for a piece I'm doing about an Easter egg hunt. 

This is a side project, just to get a little more practice drawing kids. My neighbor, Ella who's six six years old, was kind enough to pose for this one. There's really nothing like a real kid to capture naturalistic kid-like gestures. There's only so much your imagination is going to allow you to do, and though I try not to render the photo, I do try to capture the gesture.

 Been getting some interesting non-children's book related offers lately, one of which might prove lucrative. More new on that, soon.
