Illustration Friday-Visitors

Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "visitors" topic. Photographed my hand, painted a cracked paint texture, drew all the shapes in Freehand, and combined everything in Photoshop! Voila! I will be doing a companion piece to go along with it, in a day or two.

Here's to many happy visitors!

Nice perspective. I love the style of the hand! Those two colors look great together.

(The wreath looks much more photo-like than the hand though. I think it needs some outline work like the hand.)

That wood texture showing through is very "now".

I'm loving this color palette you are using lately and the way you make it look like a print. clever and great idea and it would make a hip holiday card!!!

Hey Scott, I like it now that I get it, at first I didn't realize the person was knocking. Maybe a little motion blur, also some depth blur on the door might be cool, just some thoughts, keep up the great work!

I really like all of these. I especially like the vertical ribs throughout these. I can admit that I have no idea what to call them but anywhooooo.....

Great work.
