Illustration Friday-Green 2

Click image for a larger view.

Here's a second entry for IF's "Green" topic. I still have much grander plans for this one and "Green 1", but it hasn't fully come together in my mind yet. But at least the basic components are ready to use!

Maybe next week I won't draw my hands! Maybe.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very nice work here. I like the textures in both this one and your first attempt. The different hand positions work well too. Keep up the terrific work!

It doesn't look so poisonous anymore. I think it's the little stars that make it look benign now. And I like the background better now, too!

Thanks Scott for your comments.
I just wanted to say I love both compositions. The second becomes more interesting because of the textures of the stars overlayed in the swirls. I'd almost want to see a version with some stronger colors for more contrast. But overall the design is clean, and it draws you in to question_ What is that green stuff? Nice work!

Scott, you're my 'hand hero'! These 2 illustrations are beauties, though I admit to a preference for this one because of the colors you've used - my favorite crayola crayon being sea green... (Having a tough week this week, so not sure I'll be able to submit anything, but will give the variable-width 'lines' a try if I do!)

I do like the more elaborate design in the fragrance and I like the perspective in this piece a little better, and always enjoy the mystery of course. Both pieces are unique takes on the theme, nice!

wow, two illos this week that's great. they're both good, I think (since we seem to be voting) that I like the sense of movement in the second one.

Hi Scott,

I enjoyed looking at both illos and reading all of the comments and suggestions. This is such a great, supportive community! Now for my two-cents worth. I like both illos, but I think the second one is stronger and more interesting. The perspective is better in my opinion, and I like the hand being seen through the jar now, something the other view didn't offer. Adding the stars makes it seem like there's something magical coming from the jar as opposed to something toxic. I also prefer the bluer green of the new illo, again, my personal taste :) Awesome job! I love seeing what you've been up to!

Great image Scott! Hands are hard to draw and these look awesome..

Also the colours and direction of the lines works very well.

love the look of both illustrations, the wonderful colours and textures set off against the clean lines of the white hands, great composition too!

haven't seen the first illo yet but I like this, is it just me or are you making a statement about the land of the stars and stripes?

I like the swirls in the "first" one... the colours in this one and the perspective as well.... The transparency adds another dimension. The kind of ragged quality of the fumes coming out... rather than equal is another thing i obseved that I liked in the first one ... I just wanted to say I appreciate your visits to my blog and comments..

Very graphic and full of motion. Contrary to what others thought, I thought "genie?"

Hi Scott, I'm partial to the 2nd one because the hands have more of a natural feeling, and I like the added depth of being able to see through the glass. The composition is more dynamic too. I have hands featured this week also, check it out.

If only they could save it in a jar! These are gggreat visually and conceptually! They tell a story- and leave a lot still for the viewer's imagination to come up with.

I like the design of this better than the first. Not so centered. And the colors are more pleasing too. They look more eerie and make you wonder what the green stuff is.

I really like this one and the one before it...they have a very mysterious quality. Nice! :)

This is stunning! I love the way the hands have very clean lines against the elaborately textured background!
