Illustration Friday-Foggy


Click image for a larger view.

A little something different. I'd like to know what you think. A few hours work. Drew about 12 different bird poses in Freehand. Painted a background. Used a tree photo to extract my tree image and combined in Photoshop.

What do I think?! Wow, I fell over with delight. That cluster of birds is gorgeous; I could look at it all day. We'll not find better fog this week.

I felt like putting on my pashmina shawl and walk in the the beautiful flowered gardens of Paris - or maybe a walk in the Golden Gate Park since it is closer.

Gorgeous. I love the jade-green and softness in your lines. It is calm and I feel the cool wind against my cheek. A very good vignette you crafted, Mr. Cuzzo.

Beautiful ... and I love hearing that people are still working in Freehand. I am all Illustrator now, but I have spend more than a few hours enjoying a good FH session or two.

Very nice graphic treatment. You've balanced all the elements well with the whole striking just the right balance. I particularly like the celtic knot style swirl background, a great depiction of fog.

This is superb, what an effective piece. Love the composition and graphic quality, also reminds me a little of 'The Birds', although less sinister! Would like to see more in this style :)
