Sad Little Chick

Here is another one of my Chemo Critters from 2007 that I have gone back to.  I cleaned off the background of purple paper and added some paintings of photos I took from my Fir Island collection.  I hope you have more joy than he has.  I have been on an orange color theme lately don’t know why it is what it is.

Happy

He is happy, that is all.

Pinky

Today I revisited another of my Chemo Critters, this time is my blue beaked flamingo “Pinky”.    Above you can see the original pencil sketch from my sketch pad,  I did this during an intense chemo therapy session.  You can see the progression from sketch to colored pencil on blue paper to the final digital coloring.  The cattails in the background are from a photo I took on Fir Island.  I always make an attempt to use only my own materials and content to produce these.  I hope you enjoy.

Giraffe

I sketched this image of a giraffe years ago and I continue to bring him back up and make new versions of him.  The upper left is the original sketch.  The lower right is a digital version of the sketch with a little hill I did in Adobe Illustrator.  The one in the upper right is where I took the original sketch and printed it onto textured orange paper and colored him using prisma colored pencils, I have this one framed and hanging in my house.  Then I photographed the colored pencil version and brought it back into the computer, removed the background and digitally painted a new background, I call this one “Giraffe in the moon light”.  Hope you enjoy him too.
