Illustration Friday - "Plain"



This week's Illustration Friday topic is PLAIN.

The little wooden boy Pinocchio... His lies are as plain as the nose on his face!
...or are they as planed as the nose on his face?

This is a really quick pencil sketch with a few layers of colour added in Photoshop. I'm reasonably happy with the way it's turned out and might work this up into a finished piece.

This is lovely! It has such lightheartedness and whimsy to it, without being cloying. DEFINITELY work it up into a finished piece!!

Great illo, love the colors. Your blog is really fabulous. Love especially "More Creatures" - they are absolutly perfect!

Very cool! Did you do the color washes on paper, or digitally? I really like it, nice color choices too.

Ryan, it's all done digitally in photoshop... I use transparencies on the layer to get the effect of the washes.

Hey Kev, vhrtsi's spot on, you have got a fabulous blog, one to be proud of. Pinocchio didn't have strings though.

I thought Pinnochio DID have strings until he became a boy? Anyway, nice job!
I did a "plain as the nose" post as well...in my moleskine.
