Illustration Friday: Capable

February 24, 2012

This week’s illustration Friday topic is “Capable.” I spent a lot of time brainstorming this topic, and I eventually landed on a concept that I think is kind of motivating. Many times in a person’s life, they are told by somebody else that they “can’t do something.” In fact, I spent a good chunk of my life convincing myself that there were many things I couldn’t do. Thankfully, some how, some way, many of us eventually find the energy and determination to look doubt right square in the eyes and say, “You’re wrong!”

When I had this idea, the first thing I though of was mankind’s first trip in to space. That idea had to be surrounded with doubters and nay-sayers. Well, if it’s possible for a silly illustration to inspire a person to ignore the doubters and chase a lofty dream, I hope this image does that for you. Have a great weekend everybody! 🙂 (BTW: The actual title of this image is ” Dari Takes Knuckle-Nose Home”

      Hi there, Kyle! Good to hear from you! I use Photoshop for the majority of my color work. One suggestion I can give is to limit your color palette. I have created a collection of custom color palettes in Photoshop which help me to not over think the color schemes. Good luck to you…and stay in touch. 🙂
