Illustration Friday: Song


It's a shame when a bad singer happens to a good song.

I was going to skip this week's topic, but a song by Azure Ray, 'Nothing Like a Song' kept entering my mind as if it was prompting me to draw something song related.
This sketch seemed out of character for me, and I debated about whether to finish it, but I thought it would be good to experiment outside my comfort zone, and I was curious to see how it would turn out.

Illustration Friday: Simple



When life becomes hectic and complicated it's easy to miss the simpler times of childhood. Everything seemed simpler when all I needed to know was that I loved Kermie, and Kermit loved me.
I also tried to make this week's entry simple for me by coloring a sketch I completed a couple months ago.

Illustration Friday: Chair


At first I thought this was an odd topic choice this week, but actually it could lead to endless possibilities. I reviewed some different options, but kept coming back to the pale yellow chair, and then just had decide who would sit upon it. Since I've been drawing a lot of standing characters lately this was a good exercise.

Illustration Friday: Glamour

I wasn't feeling very glamourous this week, and didn't think that I would complete this week's topic, but this young girl wanted her time in the spotlight.
