The new girls in town

I've been experimenting with some new girls. Big-headed girls! I'm inspired by Kathy Jeffords, I think she's a fantastic artist in how she captures so much personality in her characters.

I might paint this one up and use it as my submission for the week's IF word: Shaky
She's all put together, degree and briefcase in hand, but with the economy so shaky, will she ever find a good job?? I guess she's dressed a little too sexy for a job interview anyway. LOL

In her jammies, holding tight to her teddy, she's all ready for bed but she still doesn't really want to go!

She's lost in la-la land I believe :)

Wishing you all a fantastic holiday weekend! Tomorrow we'll try and catch the parade and then it's off to a family reunion picnic. I need to go make my 'pot luck' contribution!

Have a safe and happy July 4th!!
♥ Darla ♥

I love these Darla!! You've inspired me to try out drawing interesting faces again (something I haven't done since I was 16!!) I'll give it a go while waiting for the parade tomorrow, Happy Fourth of July!! :D

These are great... love the girls!! Their eyes are so beautiful! I really like 'Ms. La-La Land'... maybe because I can relate quite often! ;)

These are great. I'm a big fan of KJ and the Dreamy Giraffe. You've realyl captured the 'proportions' of big headed gals. It's so easy to get it very, very wrong. The one in the jammies with her teddy is so cute, I love her expression.

Your new big head girls are great. At first I didn't realise what you were talking about and then I saw their bodies. hehe

Hi Darla I LOVE these girls and would love to see them in colour!!! Beautiful eyes as always. I'm addicted to drawing 'big headed girls' at the moment as you can tell by my blog. I just love making new characters and these are GREAT!!!!

Thank you all so much :) Maybe I'll get some onto watercolor paper and see what happens. They sure were fun!
