Another Whimsical Girl

I stayed in bed most of the my PJ's ALL day. Just not feeling so I got out
my sketch book and gave another shot at drawing whimsical girls. I've always admired people that draw these, I've always thought, "I cant do that" then I thought...why, I think I can.
The easy way would be to "copy" someone elses work, but I have always wanted it to be totally mine. How do you make something that is totally yours?? Its hard, I study a lot of peoples work...then I put it all away and just draw from my heart, practice practice practice, different shaped heads, noses, not easy, so they are never going to look the same.
When all is said and done, I can say, hey this is mine...not bad.
Its rainy and dreary here, a good day to play hookie!!
