Illustration Friday: Sacrifice
This week’s IF theme is challenging: Sacrifice. There’s only one idea that popped up since last night – life of a mother. I didn’t want to think further, I better stuck to the initial idea. I started sketching.
Again, Belinha inspired me. She often has small pieces in her artwork. I challenged my patience this morning to do the same. I decided to give the mother three kids!! Five is perfect but… that’s beyond my limit ha ha.
I almost lost patience half way. Finding the right color for element was time consuming, although that is the art and the fun!! I got bored looking at my magazine’s torn pages.
I was happy after finishing the third kid. Pheeew! I felt like I raised the kids myself. Chaos. I used gold and silver pens to dramatize the scene. Satisfied. It looks a bit different than my previous artworks although one can still see the red thread (in fact, I wanted to go out of my style. Cannot!)
I respect the role of mother. She dedicates all of her time for family, especially for the children. She put herself after her family.
It’s almost 16:00, kids are in the kitchen. They are all over places in different moods. Mother comes with ‘light’. Children are like plants. They need to be looked after to grow well.
Mother deserves golden glitter for releasing her time for others.
