Illustration Friday: Sail

The topic for Illustration Friday for this week is “sail”, as can be seen above. Now what would be weird is if the camera pans down and we see the mast planted firmly on a field instead of a boat. A higher resolution version of the image can be found here.

When I grow up I wanna be a superhero

Illustration Friday: Super Hero

It’s been several ice ages since I participated in an Illustration Friday. So, here’s one for this week. Created wholly with the Gimp 2.2 using the handy-dandy Wacom – after I finally figured out how to activate pressure sensitivity of the stylus. Which took me an hour or so. The subject is “Super Hero”, something almost ever child dreamed of being at least once in his or her life. So here is a kid acting out his fantasy to be a costumed crimefighter, hopefully without breaking a limb falling off the roof.

A Clean Prized Object

Illustration Friday: Clean

A visual study of the juxtaposition of a gigantic, filthy garbage monster with a sparkling clean jewelled goblet upon its hand, its most prized possession. For some reason, it is the one thing in its collection which it keeps spotlessly clean. Woohoo! I get to use the word “juxtaposition” once again! Still no opportunity for the word “curbstomp”, “mandelbrot” nor “ragamuffin”.

Illustration Friday: Sorry

A late entry to this week’s Illustration Friday is my version of the current topic: Sorry. Once I read the topic, this image popped in my mind and it’ll bug me to death if I didn’t realise it. Well, enough gabbing; let the illustration tell its story.

Monster Chick

Illustration Friday: Monster

Yet another entry for Illustration Friday featuring the topic Monster, this artwork displays the city-leveling, destructive rampage of a fearsome, gigantic chick. Yes, a gigantic, adorable, yellow-feathered chick that hatched from an egg. Of course the fun would only begin when its mother of proportionate size comes to a-looking for the infant.

Illustration Friday: Insect

It’s been a while since I submitted something for Illustration Friday. So here’s the first for 2006, I believe. I came up with it quick and dirty, taking only about 45 minutes to whip this up. Apologies to all rhinoceros beetles worldwide for any discrepancies in anatomy.

Illustration Friday: Blue

Here’s an Illustration Friday piece with the subject title of “blue”. The young lady, bathed in blue light, is also feeling a little blue. A quick and dirty Photoshop painting; no photo references (and it shows… danged shadows in the wrong places). Time taken: About 45 minutes.
