Ill Fri- Atmosphere

Illustration Friday: Atmosphere was the word

A sister piece (or I guess in this case, a brother, to the previous piece for "Trail")!/photo.php?pid=6129626&id=700280922&ref=fbx_album

This is actually another recycled sketch from Tim O'brien that was, ironically, for the same assignment.

Illustration Friday- Caged

This is another piece I did for Tom Leonard. It is related to the other piece I've done. There is not written part of the story, but Tom described it as a progression from no color to full color. The story is about a girl in a boring monochromatic world, and her fish is the only thing colored. As the story goes on, more and more things become colored and weird plants and animals start coming out of objects. This is the middle illustration, so there is a balance between colored/painted and monochromatic/drawn. I thought that it would fit "Caged" because of how the little girl was breaking out of her world and into a new one.

Ill Fri- Artificial

Been awhile since I've posted anything new. This was due to the children's book that I'm currently illustrating.

I guess it was about time I tried making something for myself again. This week's word was pretty hard for me, or at least... I made it hard for me hahaha. I was thinking about how music was something that was created by man, so I attempted to illustrate some guy who has been waiting for his someone or something (which is why I put a watch there) and I guess it/they never show up. I don't really know why I put a trumpet-rose on his hand, but I guess that was my way of incorporating the word into the piece... It is not a well thought-out piece since I kind of rushed it.
