pine needle coats

Here is a picture of Bethie and her grandmother raking pine needles, in their pine needle coats.

Except I forgot the buttons! And I made the picture too small, so I couldn't get fine details, so I had to draw in Bethie's features, so she looks like a doll with a painted face -_- But I was able to give them both acorn-knit hats.

Yay!

Next time, if I want to get details, I'll do a close up on a figure rather than try to get the whole scene in.

Fallen pine needles have a warm look--and a warm smell!

Thanks--I see all the ways it dissatisfies me, but I guess I do like it, too :-)

That is lovely! I liked the textures in the paper, it adds to the feeling of the leaves as a sea.

I'm glad you like it! Yeah, the texture of the paper is neat. The ground is actually supposed to be pine needles (not that I've done anything to make that clear in the picture, but just so you know--it goes with the little scene in the last entry). I wish, in a way, that I'd focused in more closely on the characters, as I would have been able to get more details. But it was fun to draw.

You say there are supposed to be buttons, but here goes the divergent truth again demands to be told (shown): There are no buttons because they are not coats! They are creatures of the woods, made by and of the woods. ;)

If I *did* draw buttons, you could imagine them as little knots or nobs on twigs :-)

would that be subversive truth?

I love this. It makes me feel so happy and I wish I could go to that wood and help them sweep.

Yay, so glad! I wish you could, too.

the grandmother's is clearly a dress, and Bethie's is a pullover sweater. So sez I ;)

Haha, that's definitely how I ended up drawing them. I think I had a hard time deciding how, exactly, I wanted the coats to look, so I defaulted to things I know about :-P

They remind me of the Cambodian/Thai (dunno which) Buddha statues, but in an earthy "I bet you didn't know I was a bodhisattva" kinda way.

"I bet you didn't know I was a bodhisattva" would be a great line for an awkward-seeming kid to say to a new acquaintance when they're first hanging out. Hey, this'll be a great conversation opener.... no wait, it's not, no no no WHAT HAVE I DONE (their internal monologue)

Thanks! I had fun with those--I'm thinking of them as leggings. I love seeing little kids in leggings--more comfortable than tights, I think.
