IF: Wool


Howdy!  My entry to Illustration Friday theme: wool!  I had so many other sketches I was working on for this theme but none of them worked...so I drew a quick sheep in Flash instead.  I think it worked!  I like using a limited colour palette.  It just helps so much in making sure that the piece doesn't end up looking jarring or garish.  This wasn't always the case.  When I was much younger and just starting out, I used to not think of a specific palette before designing at all and the results were normally too bright and saturated with a few colour clashes here and there.  Luckily, I learned a few lessons and tricks along the way and nowadays the way I mix colours in backgrounds and characters normally get a lot of compliments.

  1. I can take a lesson for you! The palette is wonderful, nice contrasts that do not overwhelm. Love the bunny, lost in the wool, but happy! Nice dimension in the wool, too.

  2. That's one happy looking bunny :) Wonder if the sheep even knows it's there.

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!
