Toiger!

Oh man, finally finished that tiger pic I started back in... September.  Drawing the pattern helped during those mind-numbing mornings when I got up too early.  Ok, no more paisley for awhile!  ... at least not until next year (I always say that...).
Here's a close-up!
Trying out this style for a comic that's been in my head for a few years.  I picked up this fairy tale book in Tokyo with a silhouette style of illustration... it looks pretty neat, so thought I'd try it out too.  Not quite there yet, though.
Also, a year older today!  I'm officially in my late 20's.  Guh.  Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday Clio. The silhouette pic reminds me of a cut-paper thingee I used to have of a detailed image of birds in a nest, all cut from one black sheet of paper...

The tiger image is fantastic. Fine sense of color, too.

Ha ha nice paisley tiger. I have to say I love the silhouette style of the last drawing. You have to have good composition skills to pull those kind of drawings off (which you do). Oh yeah and happy belated bday, you're at the age now where you'll start thinking about how many years you have left until you're thirty.

Clio said...

I should look at Frank Miller's stuff for the silhouettes. DUH.

Chris Battle said...

Congrats on being born!

Late 20's don't seem so bad when you hit the mid 30's. Just thought I'd offer some perspective. :)

Love the style you tried with the tiger pic! Inspiring work as always.
