Illustration Friday - VOCAL

Click to enlarge, or you'll miss the racket!
The musical stylings of the Grey Family were blues at their best......or at least THEY thought so.......

I think this is actually an illustration of me (squirrel) and my neighbors around 3am during the summer!!!
Played around with my tablet for this one....which I was never any good at & haven't touched in at least 5 years. But had some fun! Might need to treat myself to a new toy if I can manage to get good at it! Big thank you to all who visited last week, & sent get well wishes! They (& a half a bottle of Nyquil!) made me feel much better! This week I invite you to check out my studio Facebook page (link in upper right) & if you like my style, be sure to become a follower of this blog! As always, I appreciate your interest!

  11. Great pack! I was wondering if someone would do wolves and this illustration is perfect. I usually feel like the squirrel too. Nice job with the tablet too. I've got one, but don't play with it much.

  15. Thanks for the comment on stooryduster.I'm typing this on a tablet for which I've just bought a cheap stylus so I can try out some of the animation apps.

    I thought the squirrel in the tree was singing the blues not complaining. The wolf's tail in the bottom left corner keeps pulling my eye in the direction away from the main focus. Especially liked the Easter bunnies and the appeal to avoid the brown eggs. My sense of humour.

    Cheers

  25. Haha, the Owl is awesome! Love all the details too, you even drew the roof of his mouth! Very vocal.

  26. Love the owl with the sax!

    As for the tablet, looks like you're doing pretty well with it. My advice, if you're feeling a bit awkward using it, just stick with it, and pretty soon it will become second nature. When I got my first tablet, I immediately became frustrated, and stuck it in the closet for a year. A year later (after the frustration had worn off!) I was determined to go digital, and picked it back up and just stuck with it... pretty soon it felt as natural as pencil and paper - I only had wished that someone had told me that at the beginning so I wouldn't have wasted a year with it in the closet!

    1. Thanks for the great advice, Matt! It's a dinosaur by today's standards, & feels really awkward, but it works, so I'm going to try to stick with it!

    And you remind me that I should start practicing with my tablet too.

  28. Dogs were howling here last night at the moon. Dingoes though not wolves. Something very magical and mysterious about it.Yours look like they're having a midnight party! Nice!

  32. Thanks so much, everyone for visiting my blog and leaving your comments! I have a blast reading them! Its funny how so many of us can relate to the crabby squirrel........

    ReplyDelete
  33. This social creatures can really create sound in the night. I recently read that wolves howl more in a lighter night sky, thus the connection to the moon.
