I take lots of photos for reference for my children’s books illustration. Often my models are young and not experienced as models. This little girl was one of those. Her grandmother was with her but because she was embarrassed with me tell her to pose this way or that way, she couldn’t stop smiling. The illustration for a children’s book I needed to draw needed a serious look. No matter what I did this little girl couldn’t stop smiling. I’m happy that I can use the photos now for fairies even though I couldn’t use them for the children’s book illustration.
What do you think?
