Illustration Friday…TWIRL!!!

January 26, 2012

Here is my submission for this week’s Illustration Friday. The topic this week is “Twirl.” I know the twirling is subtle in this one, but I went with my first instinct and this was where I landed. I hope you all enjoy it!  🙂

      I love the Comment Challenge. It has provided me with a lot of excuses to surf the Web and check out some great Blogs. Thanks for stopping by!

      Hey, thanks! I was thinking “twirl” the entire time, but it became kind of secondary to the overall image. I enjoyed creating though. Take care! 🙂

    Nice Scott, I like the freefall/twirling feeling. I have done 3 drawings for IF. Would like to keep doing it but from week to week ya never know about timing. Hope to see more IF illustrations from you.

      Thanks, Barb! I am considering building more into the image…like adding a spaceship to the top of the frame and maybe some dark landscape below the boy. But, for IF, this was all I had time to get done. I am looking forward to seeing your IF work…you have a great style!

      Take care. 🙂

    I love it – really powerful imagery. I almost think it’s better without too much detail – what’s lifting him up? What’s causing the teddy to twirl? All these questions make the work more powerful. Love the green too.

      Thank you so much for the great feedback, Magdalena! I tend to agree with you on the “leaving out detail” theory. As a viewer, I prefer to create my own story past the edge of the page. Thanks for visiting my site. Take care 🙂
