The future parents wanted an illustration full of reference to the things they liked.

the list became very long as they've got excited to see this project coming to life. We kept only a few keywords to inspire me: nature, paddle board, their two cats, dragonflies and the hand-crafted baby bed.
The two first sketches were done digitally
The final sketch: we removed the unnecessary ornaments and using the real pets as references.  The dragonflies became fireflies buzzing around.
The final illustration it took me circa three days to finish it.
I mainly use watercolour and coloured pencils to paint it and there is a bit of dry pastel to smoothen the edge of the lights.
