Grandma by chasestone Grandma by chasestone
Made this for a practice book illustration project, it was a good change of pace subject matter wise. Painted in photoshop

Edit: Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your thoughtful comments and to everyone who featured this image elsewhere. And thank you to everyone who suggested this for a DD!

This picture really made me stop and think. Great skin work on the grandma, beautiful lighting in the child's hair.

"...look at it... isn't it just beautiful...

I was only a little bit older than you the last time I saw a watersea. Soon you'll be down there... listening to waterwaves crash on the shore... watching the moontides ebb and flow across the hours...

As for your old gramma, well... I think I'll stay up here... enjoying this view. That's your life down there, your future.

Do great things with your life, child. Forge your future, remember our past, and... don't forget to look up sometimes.



...I'll always be watching over you."
