Through the door

Pencil on paper, coloured in Photoshop

This drawing evolved out of some stick-people doodles I did while listening to a lot of language-learning videos. Originally, the birds were inside the cage-dress, kind of like feathery clothing. When I made a second version, I realized that the birds were so trapped and that it would make more sense to free them. Once I drew them outside the cage, it somehow brought more life into the drawing, and there were new ways for the birds to interact with the girl, and they could share things in common, on equal footing.
