Illustration Friday: DUSTY



Too much fairy dust made everything dusty.


I  was really out of my comfort zone working on this illustration. The imagery was right up my alley, but it was rendering the image in Illustrator that challenged me. I had gotten so attached over the years to making images like this using pen and ink and watercolor that it became not just an exercise in digital illustration but an exercise in letting go. Whew!

  2. Kirsten,

    I know all about the transition from hand-drawing to computer drawing... it's not easy. But you've maintained your "look" with this piece. Nice work! You'll only get better.
