Illustration Friday-Blues Two

Click image for a larger view.

Here's a bonus image for IF's "The Blues" topic. Based on a photo that Susan took, of which I loved the composition. Relatively quick work.

The colors make this most interesting, which is so interesting since the color scheme is limited.

I really like the focus on the shadows. It is a different way of looking at things.

Hi Scott, no new work on my end unfortunately, just starting my first week of uni and only just got internet access (on my new MacBook, mmmm).

As usual your new works are very cool, I wish I could draw more realistically like that... might get time to do some more drawings when I'm settled in a bit more. I'll be sure to check back here when I can.

Good to see more cool work as usual!

This one I love Scott, and my love is worth more because it's conditional! :) (I'm referencing a This American Life segment) So let's see; you've got a triangular composition but it's off kilter creating some energy, the lines create a sense of depth and perspective, and then there's the mystery of the mundane, very cool!

Nice drawing! I like how they seem to look back and walk away from their shadows.(but that might only be something in my head)

Very cool idea!
I like just the lower legs and feet showing, and yet one gets much more the idea of what they are doing from their shawdows.

In response to your comments on me blog: Definitely check out Joan Miro's art, he's a great inspiration. As for going digital, using a wacom, and learning new programs; yes the learning curve is great, but I think it goes faster for anyone already knowledgeable with art fundamentals like yourself. I actually only have Corel essentials right now but it is fun to play with. I almost wish I hadn't played with Photoshop Essentials for a few weeks because now I'm having to relearn a bunch in CS3, ah well, it'll be worth it in the long run. Take care Scott!

I like your hard edge style. The shadows really help to tell the story in a unique way.

Excellent use of the reference photograph. The color combos and economy of detail strengthen the great composition of the source photo. Well done.

I've always been a big fan of a good use of shadows within illustration, nice work.

That IS an interesting composition. I like the full child figure in shadow, but no other full figure. Nice.
