Illustration Friday-Citrus






Click images for larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "citrus" topic. And you get four for the price of one! Created today, Friday, specifically for the challenge. I might totally rework these tomorrow, just for fun.

I see now I should have made my lemons a bit smaller. I thought I had them all in the right proportion.

proportions look fine... I like the somplicity and cleaness of it all, not to busy, and yet not banal either. although its in vector, the way you've varied the stoke width gives it a nice "human" look (for lack of a better word).
Nice work.

I'm so glad you like my CITRUS! (sophie-the-pearl)
I like yours a lot, too! Tres jolie!

Also visited your professional website, and am very impressed, since I've been a digital illustrator, and understand the work that goes into the details! BraVO!

I really like the last one, Scott! This one would make a great packaging design. [btw I love the way you made those grapefruits so appetizing]

They are very soothing by themselves, but together in the last one they really make a visual impact:)

Very exotic and bright, so exotic in fact, that you managed to trick my brain into thinking it was on holiday.

I think the mark of a great style is presenting the idea in a clear and attractive way without getting too polluted with other aspects. I hope I can learn something (about style) by looking at your work, I doubt it though (totally lacking: me). So, I’ll just do the next best thing, enjoying your art :)

Nicely done. They would look great on a massive,
"pop-art in a Chelsea gallery "size.

I also thought the proportions were fine.

Sizing looks okay to me. I've seen some pretty good sized lemons. Cool colors and really great shading.

A smorgasbord of sweet, clean, and natural. I like the colors, pale, yet perfectly citrus, and swear I can taste the tangy sweet quality of each. Fascinating work, and in this case delicious work, and the lemons are a bit large, but who wants puney lemons anyway-not me.
