How did you make this work:
I created these illustrations for the Instagram challenge “Powerful Women Week” which I host annually with a group of female illustrators. Drawing challenges with a prompt list for inspiration and a specific deadline, are a great way to create personal work.
For this challenge, I wanted to practice frame-by-frame animation and composition and also show confident women who encourage each other.
