Progress Picture #3: Shelby

Shelby by collage artist Megan Coyle

Here's the next stage: Shelby's just about finished although her background needs a bit more work. Also her face needs to be slightly reshaped and her tongue is just a pencil sketch at the moment. I'll post the finished image later this week.

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! I had a busy but fun holiday. Lots of food and lots of work. I was happy that I finished all my commissions in time for the holidays in December, although once that was over, I plunged into working on my book.

Any New Year's resolutions? I keep mentioning in my newsletters and blog that I want to do some animation and video work. So I've decided that I'll stop talking about it and actually get started on some video work this year. I'd also like to work on animations, but we shall see. I don't want to bite off too much more than I can chew! (Although I do have a tendency of doing that)

She's looking amazing already! Wonderful combination of colors.

Can't wait to see more of your children's book and the video. We're going to hold you up to that. :)

Oh, sweet Shelby!

I have resolved to allow myself to quilt what I want to without restricting myself to first having a recipient or utilitarian use!

Hi Megan, This is fun having a front row seat to watch you develop "Shelby". Her expression is wonderful. I'm also liking how you develop and shape the lights and darks.
I am most curious to see how you like animation. Happy New Year!
