Okay, the geeky little boy in me drew for this week's topic. The library in my town has the best fairy tale section, and after I get into reading them again, I again go straightaway to looking at my favorite illustrators, Kay Nielsen (you can tell by my tree ref.) and John Bauer (inspiration to grudgingly work back in monotone). I haven't drawn seriously in pencil for a long time, and it took me ages to realize that I couldn't just resize, move and undo what I drew. Damnit, photoshop. The image is busier than what I wanted, and I realize I need to practice a lot more on tone and shading, but it's been meditative to go handmade.
PS- The weird stuff on the trees are supposed to be moss...
I'm excited to see everyone's work, I'm looking forward to all your postings!
