Illustration Friday: Yield
Here is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday. I am realizing that my schedule may not allow me to submit an illustration every week, but it is a good feeling to know you always have a project on the back table when you want to experiment a bit.
This week I tried something new by adding just a few hints of color on the computer once I scanned in the drawing. I am excited by the potential of working in this way, but I quickly realized that I need to do a lot of experimentation/reading about how to best implement Photoshop to the task.
This drawing also has a secret: there was a whole second half to the drawing that I cut out. I had drawn a bunch of mean looking figures and creatures to the right, who were confronting the little girl. I came to realize, however, that they were only distracting from the girl, so they were reluctantly eliminated. It is a better drawing for it, though.
