IF: Satellite

Here is my picture for satellite. I thought I'd try something a little different this time and attempt a photoshop painting. I'm quite happy with how Kong turned out but not so sure about the plane in the foreground. I wanted to keep it sketchy and get energy into the picture but I think it might have been better if I was better at rendering things properly. Something to work on in the future.

Also I tried to make it look like Kong was swiping his arm but I'm not sure it comes across.

IF: paisley

This is my Illustration Friday submission for "paisley". I was thinking of ideas for what to do and when I looked at some paisley designs I thought to myself, "They look like amebas/bacteria things", so that is what I did.

This is my Illustration Friday Installment for Ripple. It's not very good. I've not spent much time on it because I want to concentrate on my writing this week instead. However I felt it was important to at least attempt something. So I drew a grumpy Gnome who is tried of fishing. I tried to do it in a watercolour type style.

For this weeks Illustration friday image I wasn't sure it was going to work as it's a very long illustration. I was hoping that the browser would show the whole thing and let you zoom in but it only lets you zoom in a little. Oh well, worth a try.

The word was trail so here is the story behind it, Hansel and Gretel are leaving a trail of breadcrumbs which are being eaten by Red Riding Hood. Red is leaving a scent trail which is being followed by the wolf. The wolf is leaving a paw print trail which is being followed by the woodcutter.

Update: I decided to cut up the picture and add it this way as well so people could see it better.
