Commission: Ms D
Wednesday, September 14th, 2011
A triumph of Twitter! The wonderful Angel Sullivan tweeted asking if there was someone who could draw her fairy for her for a reasonable fee, and a few tweets and emails later, Ms D was underway. She wanted the dragonfly wings to have a “soap-bubble quality” to them, so instead of my usual Copic markers I got out the watercolors and mixed up some very pale purple, blue and green to go over the waterproof Micron lines.
Ms D, 5″x5″ pen and ink and watercolor on paper, not for sale.
I asked Angel to write a little bit about her experience working with me as her illustrator, and this is what she had to say:
Working with Amy was easy beyond my hopes.
I was, initially, a little bit worried about trying to convey the look that I wanted for the fabulous Ms D & having it translated to the page in the way I’d really hoped for. Turns out, there was no need to be concerned. Amy was totally open to the few changes that I wanted along the way (because it was so close to just right the first time, yay!) & Ms D came out incredibly well. Amy kept to the initial timeline that we’d gone over and remained in touch with me through the process… I’m so thrilled and grateful for the way it all worked & look forward to working with Amy again in the future!!!
Ms D is reserved solely for Angel’s use, but if you click on her you can see the detail in her wings much more closely.
