My inspiration for Avatar creation comes from my experiences and vision from my childhood. Living in a challenging and ever changing world, it is sometime refreshing to think back when I was younger. No cares or worries in the world. I truly loved my childhood. So that is where I started with my design. I used a lot of colors to represent my happy childhood. I admired Pippi Longstocking, for her spontaneous personality, so I incorporated some of her styles: socks, dress, and hair. The high heels were an inspiration from my mom. The background is an image from Candyland, one of my favorite games when I was little. I created the girl in illustrator then brought into photoshop for shading and fine-tuning.
