Illustration Friday: Spent - Afterwards



Well, this is a very late post done specifically for Illustration Friday's topic, spent. I wanted to do a literal interpretation and not one of my typical stretch the topic deals. But, now I'm posting after the deadline and the new topic is afterwards, so here we are doing a new stretch.

I plan to color this, (or perhaps it should be just a line drawing), and add it too my promotional packet of piggies and such. I think I need to decrease the size of the piggie bank. Critiques are welcome.

Super illustration, love how the piggy has a person bank.

It is a very funny idea. But I think it is not necesary the child on the left. It would understand better the concept with only a paralelism between the girl and the pig.

Connie said...

Love your lines and pleased to see this before you coloured it in.

A lovely illustration - great line work and a sense of humour too :)

Traci Maturo said...

I love the humor behind your piece.

I also don't get the 1st kid on the left. Do love the girl w/piggy bank & the Pig w/kiddy bank

Thanks everyone for your input! I started this sketch with the boy searching in his empty wallet and the girl. The pig was an afterthought. It's good to have fresh eyes view this to help me be critical about what is working and what is not. Thanks all!

What's not to "get"? The kid on the left is playing in a box, that's what kids do! ;) Nice line work -a. Good stuff as always.

I love the twist on the human bank as well. Very clever. Nice drawing.

Geka said...

I really like the pig's "piggy" bank! Funny idea! Nice drawing as well!

Brilliant! Can't wait to show this to my kid :D

Love this! I'm sure it would look awesome in color too, but it's so fun to see the line detail in the black and white.

Ray Ferguson said...

Very Clever! Very Nice stuff!

dex mission said...

I love your lines. They are very simple but so expressive.

Curious Art said...

The pig with the kiddy bank is brilliant-- that it was an afterthought is proof that the physical act of drawing taps into the imagination in a way that planning never can. One of the beautiful mysteries of art!

Your linework is delightful but I would love to see this in color too...

Julissa said...

Cute sketch! I too like the concept of the girl and the pig. :D

Michelle Henninger said...

HAHA! Great sense of humor! I love that in an illustration!

Bella Sinclair said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh my goodness, will he go for the FACE? Hahahahahaha. Very clever. This reminds me of piñatas and really how horrifying it is when the piñata is of a living form, like Dora. Wack wack wack!

And it's good to stretch, no? :)

Nina Crittenden said...

A Kiddie Bank! So clever! I love the determined look on the pig's face! :)

Tracy said...

This is great!

sketched out said...

Hee hee heee! Love this concept! Your piggies are so wonderful, I love them.

I agree that without the third kid the focus is on the joke, but I do like the overall balance of the third kid. Maybe he could have a piggy bank too. Well, any way you go, this is a great image as is!!

Lovely lines! Clever and fun, th perfect match :)
