Illustration Friday: Animal

November 17, 2015 , In: Illustration, Illustration Friday , With: 4 Comments

I can’t believe I had so much trouble picking the animal for this challenge. All of my sketches and doodles are always involving some kind of animal, but now that the subject actually was “animal” it got tricky… I finally went with whale, but we all know that there are a bunch of (really cute) whale illustrations and art out there, I thought I’d pick a slightly different scenery this time. Whales are such mysterious and profound beings, and just so we are all clear, this is just a whimsical illustration. Whales should always be free (all animals should). Take care everyone!

    Oh, thank you so much! This one was first sketched by hand but then finished in illustrator 🙂 The texture was then added in photoshop, using a scanned page of really light watercolor and then blending the two layers in photoshop. Hope that makes sense haha, not used to explaining my process.

  2. So beautiful illo with lovely colors!
