Little Ugly Duckling by Mayumi Ogihara

Little Ugly Duckling
by Mayumi Ogihara

Prompt: Little Ugly Duckling
prompted by: Afke, during Sketch Fest #39 (July, 2013)

Hehe, I couldn't help. I saw the stock photo of the girl in the middle, and she is so adorable, that I had to do a quick sketch in the last 30 minutes :) She is not ugly, just a little different, but she doesn't care! She is happy ♥ Graphite on 10x8 Bristol. Reference:


Jenny Heidewald says: Cute! This reminds me of Lilo and Stitch.:) ~ Reply?

     Mayumi Ogihara replied to this: Hehe, thanks Jenny :D

mikka says: They're all adorable ... and yet it can be oh so very awkward being not like the others. :-/ ~ Reply?

     Mayumi Ogihara replied to this: Thank you, mikka ♥ I grew up in Japan, and being different was not a good thing when I was a kid. I wish I had enough courage to be myself, like this little girl in the middle :)

Afke says: The ugly duckling wasn't ugly either, it's just that the other ducks made fun. I think this is perfect! I love her face and the way all the kids stand, wonderfully expressive poses. ~ Reply?

     Mayumi Ogihara replied to this: Thank you so much, Afke, for the wonderful comment!!
