I had so much fun recreating this concept for the Schmidt family! I loved the different elements of each family member. A camera for Mom. An iPhone for Dad, a baseball bat for Ian, a hockey jersey for Patrick, ballet shoes for Molly, and a sock in Fisher’s mouth. Check out their entry:
|What are you family Members names, ages, color hair, color eyes, etc.? And, tell me a bit about their personality.*|
|Dad – Chad, blue eyes, bald . Unbelievably sweet, kind, loving, great player with the kiddos. Has a PhD and works in research. Often seen with iPhone or laptop in hand. Loves music and reading.Mom (me) – LeAnne, blue eyes, light brown/dark blonde curly hair. Grateful for my beautiful family. Photographer, would like to include the camera somehow.
Ian – age 16, red hair, loves baseball. Runs cross country. Smart, sweet, good kid.
Patrick – age 12, blonde hair, blue eyes, loves hockey and baseball, great smile. Often seen wearing a baseball hat backwards, loves to read, great friend, sweet kiddo.
Molly – age 8, long straight blonde hair, dancer, princess, drama queen. Loving, sweet, funny kiddo. Also loves to read.
Fisher – age 4, Portuguese water dog. Goofy. Often seen with a stolen sock in his mouth.
|The 3 to 5 prominent colors I would like in my piece include (be specific—ie. “royal blue” rather than “blue”, or “light celery green” rather than “green”): *||Dark browns, sage green, light blues. Also maybe include some pink.|
|Is there a career path you would like to include in an illustration :||Photography for me, Chad’s is optional. And maybe just the camera somewhere, strapped on my back or off to the side.|
|Tell me what you would like to see your family doing (would you like them just sitting all together posing, as if for a picture? Or would you like them to be doing something together). Please supply the most details here:||I love the “loving family” onewhere everyone is just close and loving. We also just returned from a trip to Florida and had a wonderful time playing in the waves…but I am thinking swimsuits…not so much!! So probably just together…Also love the balloons with the last name, and happy people.
|Any other details you might be able to give me that would help ensure your enjoyment of the piece:||I use organic bloomframes and like the vintage look of them. I also like the swirly aqua lines around the “loving family” one you’ve done.|
Thank you Schmidt Family for this opportunity to illustrate you! What a great bunch you are!! I hope you love your piece!!
Happy weekend everyone!!!
