Illustration Friday - Burst

Bursting right through the sound barrier. Very much inspired by The Rocketeer.

Illustration Friday - Tall

I wonder how he even fits inside that bus or who he gets to tailor his suits.

Illustration Friday - Suspend

She's suspended in the air by what appears to be a flower-powered pedastal. Very intruiging.

Illustration Friday - Hurry!

Hover cars go very FAST - in the future
For my birthday I got a new watercolor brush. This was the first picture I tried using it on, and to my surprise I could paint better washes using it! I added some color pencil afterward to outline various areas and add texture to the scenery.

Illustration Friday - Sight

The secretary of the future will be given advance sight into your business needs. Simply equip her with the Advance Secretary Visual Aid and she'll be able to file your reports, answer calls, and plan appointments without the need of any paper!
This message is brought to you by the Tacky 50's Futuristic Idea Society.

I must admit though, this would be an interesting gadget, much like the touch screen system seen in the film, Minority Report.

Illustration Friday - Heights

I've actually never been on the roof of a tall building before. It's probably really windy, I would imagine.

Illustration Friday - Popularity

Popularity can be quite dangerous, especially if you have rabid fans whose admiration for you goes well beyond what would be considered civilized behaviour.

Illustration Friday - Prepare

Prepare for BATTLE.
I've been studying Yoji Shinkawa's art style, particularly his work on the Metal Gear Solid series. Shinkawa uses so few brush strokes to portray a perfect composition or feeling in his artwork that it's difficult to replicate. The soldier I've drawn is more reminiscent of 50's and 60's commercial art, which is an appealing style to me still. Although, I'd still prefer to figure out how Shinkawa creates such a dream-like atmosphere in his artwork.

Illustration Friday - Grounded

Instead of doing my usual color pencil technique of filling in every single speck of paper showing through, creating the appearance of paint, I went with a more lighting emphasized picture. In other words, being a lazy artist not wanting to spend that much time on it. Although using a limited amount of colors and a more transparent blending on brown paper does create a visually nice, dream-like atmosphere, so I might use this technique more often.
