Here is fall card I worked on. Here is the first sketch I came up with.
This design was done for a 5x7 card. I first came up with the main image. I knew I wanted a cat and I decided to do a cat that my Mom owns. Here name is Sadie. She is a black and white cat they found and decided to keep.
I outlined a cat sketch and then thought about what I wanted to add. I knew it should be bright and fun and it took me awhile to think of what else to add. Sometimes you know what you want to do right away and sometimes it can take awhile.
