401. Character Week – As a child

“Dear Diary, when I grow up I would like to visit Earth. It’s green and lush, nothing like this lump of red dust we call a planet. Mom and dad keep saying it’s too expensive, but one day, I will visit this paradise and see it with my own black eyes”.

I would like to (someday) illustrate children’s books. My wife would like to write children’s stories. Who knows my own dream will one day become a reality, just like Steve, who as a child dreams of visiting Earth as long as he was a child.

This is the original sketch. I tried to white balance it as the Moleskine sketchbook has a tendency to be yellow, which is not really an issue but when transforming it to watercolor paper it can waste more black ink than needed.
