Illustration Friday: Safari

Several years ago I did a small illustration of a girl¬†showing her giraffe puppet to a giraffe at the zoo. I always liked the concept but never really liked the finished piece. When this week’s Illustration Friday topic came up I knew that I wanted to revisit the idea. This sweet little image is the result. I will be working on the background this afternoon and will update the image once I am done.



Personally, I feel I got a little heavy handed with the outlining on this one. I’m not sure whether it is a good thing or a bad thing yet.

As always… constructive criticism always appreciated!

    I actually like the outline here. The illustration is very geometric, and the outline compliments the style. Lol, and I love that giraffe’s expression on the right. Great composition, too.

    Another thumbs-up on the outlining. It does work very well with your style, the warm colors and the paper color. Beautiful…from another colored pencil artist!

    I like it… and the outlining works for me. Now I will have to check out your other work and see if you got heavy handed :)

    I wouldn’t have noticed the outlines until I read your comment, and it works for me! I love the expressions the most – the girl is so sweet and the other giraffe carrying the big guy is funny! Love it!

    I love your work. The expression on the giraffe’s face is priceless. I didn’t even notice the outlining but then I’m a writer and not an artist.
