Illustration Friday: Subtract



I made this for I.F.. I think I'll probably rework it, I'm not so happy about the contrasts; especially the stuffed animal's face, which blends too much in the background.

V.F.: Je viens de faire ça pour Illustration Friday, je suis à moitié contente du truc; les contrastes ne sont pas formidables, en particulier le visage de la peluche qui ne se détache pas bien du fond.

I can see your concern with the face on the stuffed animal, but I have to say I really like the colors being so muted. It makes it as though she is sneaking into her parents room after a bad dream.

Oh, Beatrice, she is sooo adorable! How sad that her Eeyore's tail fell off. Is that why you subtracted her smile? I love the bright daisies on her PJs, too, and the way they pop out of the muted colors.
