    IF: Winter 

    Submission for Illustration Friday: Winter

    In the tropics, winter just means a lot of rain.

    Done in MyPaint 0.8.2 using wet paint brush.

    Illustration Friday is a weekly creative outlet/participatory art exhibit for illustrators and artists of all skill levels. It was designed to challenge participants creatively. Illustration Friday just gives a no-pressure, fun excuse to use it. No clients looking for a particular thing. No one judging the outcome of the work. It’s a chance to experiment and explore and play with visual art.

      We’ve had a lot of rain here lately, and we used to live in the tropics so I can relate to your illustration :-). Great concept.

    IF: Adrift 

    Illustration Friday: Adrift

    This is a pencil sketch of my idea. I’m sure a lot of people will think of water first when presented with this week’s theme “adrift”. So I decided to think out of the box and came up with being adrift in the wind. So instead of being adrift on the sea, the raft is now adrift on the winds of fate. But the passengers doesn’t seem too concerned about where they will end up.

    IF: Muddy 

    Illustration Friday: Muddy

    This is from an old pencil drawing that I thought fits in with the Illustration Friday theme “Muddy”. I like the drawing a lot and I planned to colour it but I never got around to doing it. Perhaps I’m subconsciously afraid that I would messed it up as colouring is not my strong point.

    IF: Focused 

    Illustration Friday: Focused

    This picture was done in 3 layers in photoshop; 1 for needle and thread, 1 for fingers and 1 for the face. I didn’t do a rough sketch. I roughly knew what I wanted and also didn’t want to spend too much time on the picture. So I just coloured in straight. I did the needle first, then the thread, fingers and finally the face. Then I blurred face so there would be some depth to the picture. I also darkened it a little so it won’t steal the spotlight from the needle and thread.
