Feeted Fish and Endangered Feet


Endangered Feet- Illustration Friday.
OK...here is a more serious approach. Pen and ink sketched out with graphite first.

Several "feet" under the ocean is where you'll find..."feetless fish" dreaming of the "feeted" kind! or.....
"I feet a fish a fish I feet and on that feeted fish I feast!" LOL!
Pen and ink, coloured on the computer then retouched with coloured pencil and more ink.
Sorry, I am in a bit of a silly mood this week. Guess feet make me feel silly. I have a more detailed piece coming.

Silliness is something I can definately relate to :) Fun idea! This could also in a shortcut way tell the story of evolution, hihi.

I like the very poignant message in the first illio. It really strikes a cord.

Eek, your second one is even nastier than mine! :) I'm not quite sure I understand how this evolutionary process is working, but it made me laugh anyway, The colours combine really well!

I really appreciate your first one - the message, the content and the layout, but then I'm a paid up member of The WorldWide Fund for Nature so that's probably no surprise :). There's not a lot we can do about species survival, but that's one thing...

HI Ellen,
Thanks for your nice post on my blog! YOu had asked about the paper I use with colored pencil work. I have used just about everything - bristol board, drawing paper, hot pressed watercolor paper - anything smooth and tough I guess. I am still in search of a favorite I suppose.
Can't wait to see what you come up with for "monster" this week, I'm sure it will be great! Thanks again!
Corinne
