Illustration Friday: Flawed

Reginald almost looked like a regular little boy.
There was one small flaw

Weekend means doodle time

I envy people who keep a tidy desk when they work. At any given time, mine looks like some deranged muse threw up crayons all over it. Oh well.

Anyway, I'm back to being elbow-deep in muse puke; after a month's break, I've started plugging away at my next show. I've chosen to finally illustrate a short story that has been on my mind for a long, long time; I've never illustrated a story start to finish, so this is an interesting exercise.

I've read that story many times over the years, so I'm illustrating from memory rather than following the text. I started by trying to follow the text, but I found this method works better for me - helps me sift the key elements and focus on transcribing the atmosphere. But for all I know this is how illustrators work... so much for my big self-discovery!

Illustration Friday: Pale

This is another of the series I made for a show themed after the 7 deadly sins.
This one was sloth; there's definitely some unhealthy pallor going on here.
