A Study in Apple-Cheeks.

This drawing started as an exercise in adding color to cheeks and then developed into a fuller picture. Contact me if you want to use this one or commission similar.

I achieved 'the rosy cheek effect' by putting an oval shape with Advance Gradient colour fill over the girl's face. Advanced Gradient is in Graphic Inspector. Here it is separately:

And here's a screenshot of the Graphic Inspector showing the colours. Note that you have to choose 'Ripples' to change from sideways gradient to radial.

I was lazy and decided to edit my earlier drawing of a pumpkin into the girl's hair. Do you recognise it?
