Family Portrait : The Leviens

Some friends of mine are pretty big Star Wars fans.  I decided to celebrate the arrival of their most recent addition, a darling baby boy, by giving them a family portrait, Star Wars style. (I did ask ahead of time to make sure the husband wouldn’t be offended at being depicted as a Wookie.  He wasn’t.)

I did the initial drawing in brown ink and used watercolor over top.  I have to say, I’m really in love with Faber-Castell pitt atist pens. Great color and permanence, I never worry about bleeding when I watercolor on top of my line work. It’s nice.
