Anklebiter Sneak Peak

You haven't forgotten about International Anklebiter Illustrator Day, right?  It's tomorrow.  Zak S is hosting it, and I'm participating by submitting a couple of illustrations crayoned by my seven year old daughter.  She submitted the artwork on time, but it won't be published until tomorrow.  In the meantime, I've got an example of her work - she asked to paint up a figure for me, and here's the result:

From Pendraken'sARL18 - Arthurian Personalities

That's her first ever work in this medium.  She probably had half as much fun painting it as I had watching and helping her.  I'm tossing her all of the odd lots that I can spare, so now she's got her own collection started.  As I type this, she's busy working on a minotaur shaman.  It's getting hard to see the screen because my eyes are sweating...

  1. One of the most important things to learn as a parent is that our kids are capable of doing some truly amazing things even at a young age.

    So far my two youngest have just been priming models and doing a little drybrushing with me, but this has inspired me to simply hand them some models and encourage them to paint them up fully on their own.

    That said, I'll be proud if they do eve half as well as your daughter - I've painted enough 10mm figs to know how fiddly they are, and she's done a remarkable job!
