IF - Unbalanced

Two Sisters

The Beaufort Sisters were always the talk of the town, for they were such a peculiar pair of combination.

Rose the eldest was graciously beautiful, but with a temper that could frighten even the strongest of hearts. Most days she would stomp and scream while her face burnt red in her uncountable tantrums.

Charlotte, being so much less adorned because of her simple features, was on the other hand humble and kind. She would be seen with her sweetest smile throughout the day and be the first person to lend a helping hand.

Mr. and Mrs. Beaufort, as many parents would feel, often wondered how such beloved siblings could be different as night and day. Baffled each time, they would just shrug the notion away and understood it as one of life’s unbalanced gift.

  1. Like their hair and expressions!

  2. I love your colored pencil work! The frame idea's fun, too.

  3. Wow! You really captured the essence of the characters in the portrait. I could tell immediately which was Rose and which was Charlotte. It was fun to read the story that went along with the image. I'd love to hear more about Rose and Charlotte!

  4. haha, i dunno, actually i was pretty lazy while drawing it, jadi aja hasilnya pas2an...
    you know, sometimes i have like a lot of ideas in my head tapi berhubung aku ga bisa gambar dengan baik dan benar jadi weh... :D LOL
    ternyata susah ya ngegambar itu, i wish i could draw---like the way you draw---sighs.

    aku mo jadi akuntan lagi aja ah seperti dulu, kayanya lebih mudah, hehe...

    ngga deng aku mo jadi dua-duanya, an accountant who sometimes draw for the sake of her alter ego.

    yea, whatever.

  5. btw, yes, i agree, the frame idea is nice!!!!!
