I love it when customers get creative with their custom orders. Earlier this year one customer challenged me in a way I didn't expect. She wanted to give her boyfriend a cool gift that he would really enjoyed so she decided on a quilled Yoda canvas. I was blown away by the fact that she had already done some research: she sent me so much inspiration and gave me useful tips to make this design exactly what she wanted. One of the things she emphasized was to give Yoda a welcoming, serene and happy look. Now let me tell you why this project was such a challenge.
I had never before attempted a quilling portrait so this made it quite interesting and I had fun trying different techniques to fill it in. However, the biggest challenge was making the character's smile pop up. There was a lot of trial and error involved in the process, but I eventually figured it out.
The pictures in this post aren't the best, but I'm so happy with overcoming this creative challenge. I do hope you'll enjoy these though. And please let me know in the comments below what you think.
