little sketch for IF

I made this little sketch for IFs new prompt "artificial". The little girl created an artificial friend to play cards with. I know, this may seem a bit sad, but sometimes you have no other choice as a kid, if no one wants to play the exact game you have in mind right now. So why not make up a friend, that just does everything you want. Doesn't sound bad to me.
I actually used this little illo to practice my inking skills a little, as they are rather poor to be true. I really have to get better at this. But there seems to be no other way then doing it as often as possible and someday finding the right technique that goes well for oneself.
This is really a quick one, so I hope you enjoy it anyway and have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hi Mary, it's sad but usual, there are adults who are also very lonely, and must invent a friend.
    I like the colors you use.

  11. Always worth having a look here, every now and then...you got a point there Maria, there's no harm in creating a friend, though I wouldn't say it's not that artificial...Thank you for this nice illo!

  13. Well, I used to have an imaginary friend when I was little, who liked to come out every time my real friends were not around. :)

    I like this, Maria. Especially the idea, which I can relate to very much.

  15. i want this artificial friend.
    I want to fly away from this room and run with him in the fields.
    But the man is so lonely, so sad.
    I can’t just leave him alone.

  19. it doesn't sound bad to me either. i have lots of friends to play with and whenever i'm in need i don't hesitate to create a couple more in my mind and i don't think it'd be artificial i think it's kinda real and never sad for sure cos it's always great fun. and what is your friend made of? is it a pillow in the middle? and what did you use for the legs and shoes and why not put on at least one hand to hold the cards i think it's a big mistake and the face is nicely drawn though on tin it must have been a hard work good job bye
