Quiet I and II


Quiet II
YEAH! I finished it! "Jack-O-Lynn and Sabastian were enjoying a QUIET evening at home when along came a spider!"
I started this piece originally to enter for the "Black and Orange Contest" but decided it was better for "Quiet."
I started it as a sketch in graphite...copied over with ink...added colour on the computer...added more colour with coloured pencils and viola!
BTW there is another Halloween art contest with AWESOME prizes over at Renderosity.com check it out!


Quiet I
Quiet as a mouse...of course!
My parents drove the seven hours south to visit us last week end. They live up near Canada. A great time was had by all. Needless to say my entry this week is not quite done so this one will have to do until the other is finished. This was done in watercolour pencils and touched up on the computer.

Cute mouse! Do mice really like cheese? I've often wondered this...my nickname since childhood has been "Mouse" because I love cheese so much. Your illustration made me think of this...

These are both so cool! I can't decide which I like better! The colors are always so vibrant and alive in your art. Wonderful as always.

Both fine pictures - I particularly like the colour/black-and-white contrast in the mouse picture. I'm not sure of your technique - do you mean that you print out the computer-coloured pic, then colour over it with pencils and rescan? Interesting concept, and a neat approach!
