Illustration Friday - Balloon



My submission for Illustration Friday's theme Balloon. This is my first entry there, I have just recently discovered the site on Wednesday in lieu of Inspire Me Thursday. I think these outlets are good to keep me on my toes in the struggle to draw something everyday if not every week. And in pushing the envelope futher and sharing it with people! yikes! I feel much like the girl in the drawing today - Distant. My mind is like the balloon - wanting to wander elsewhere but tied down. Ah such is life. Enjoy.

Cute! :o)

Quick question: Is that a drawing with water color?

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments!

Amber - Sadly, its not a watercolour. Its just a simple pen and ink sketch I scanned from my skbook and added a photoshopped pattern paper background for a pop of colour.

The lazy way out. I didn't feel like painting. Not after painting all those dots for Inspire Me Thursdays submission. I was too pooped to paint. :oP

IF prompts are my way of keeping myself drawing too. It's a no pressure environment, since these are not finished masterpieces, just sketches really, but it keeps me drawing. Motivation is a b-i-a-t-c-h sometimes, huh? great illo, love the free flowing line.
