Ava Thursday: Little Finger People

Ava wanted to draw in my sketchbook last week and proceeded to trace out her hand. The next thing I know she's created all these little people for the fingers. It was completely her idea, no parental involvement. She then handed the sketchbook over to me and told me to do the same with my own hand.
I had fun doing this! I might have to do this more often, when I get bored waiting for a render, or something. It was very invigorating trying to figure out how to draw the little characters for each finger.
For the record, Ava told me who to draw. On my hand, from left to right is: Ava's cousin Matt, his sister Naomi, my sister (and their mother) Amy, Ava, Ezra. Ezra ended up looking like some strange little stunted man, worried about being the thumb.
Ava's hand (L to R): Ava, Mommy, Daddy, best friend Stella, Ezra.
I really like these little characters. I'm thinking about getting Ava to help me out in coloring this when I get the chance. And when I do, I'll be sure to post it here. This was a fun little project and hope to do it again with Ava soon.
