Illustration Friday - Transportation



Ooohh! I'm dying to get some color back on this blog! Too bad it won't happen in time to post on Illustration Friday this week. In the meantime, here's my sketch for 'Transportation.' When I've finished this piece in color, I'll post it. I'm having a big debate with myself about the sky. Add some clouds? No clouds just some interesting color? I'll have to see how it evolves.

This one is fabulous, Marion! So full of fun--I especially like the little bird on the hood!

Thank you so much Michele, Anne Marie, Diane and Karen!
MIchele, I'd like to know what their up to too. Meaning - I'd love to have a brainstorm for a really good story with these characters. That happens a lot with IF. Somehow, I keep picturing this bunch at the beach.

Thank you Ginger and Jessie! Yes, the color is my favorite part too. Especially just beginning the color - that's the most exciting part for me. Thanks for your kind comments!
