Merry Christmas-Kali made pictures

Hey remember when Kali did a study of Mel Crawford and I critiqued her?

Well, she thought about all the critical points and then went and tried another one, and because she took the advice seriously, Jesus rewarded her with the gift of progress!

Look what she made now.
What a killer eye she has. She didn't even trace this.
This is the value of studying the works of really good artists-and then methodically analyzing the differences between your copy and the original, then correcting your mistakes.

After copying actual pictures as exactly as she could, she took the next step of trying to figure out what Mel's thinking was behind his artistic decisions. She analyzed his general theories then gave this to me for Christmas!

And wait'll you see the ones she did for Marlo and Katie! I'll post them after they see them, so as not to spoil the surprise.

Merry Christmas all you cartoon lovers out there! I hope Jesus rewards you with critical acuteness and methodical planned progress!
