Illustration Friday - "Multiple"

At first this Illustration Friday illo started with a cowboy at the saloon with the bartender serving multiple drinks to him.  I didn't like the design of the cowboy and liked the design of this guy- so I simplified it down to just him.  He's serving multiple drinks, with multiple bottles behind him- I think I over explained it again.  I did this in gouache.

Illustration Friday - "Theory"

This weeks topic "Theory" made me think of an evil scientist coming up with a theory to take over the world.  So I came up with this image.  It's painted in gouache- I'm still trying to figure out how to paint (I'm usually illustrating on the computer.).  I spent about 6 hours on this and had a blast:)

Illustration Friday - "Choose"

  This is what came to mind for the topic "choose".  I love food and really love dessert- so here's a French looking waiter guy offering some desserts to "choose" from.  (I probably just over explained it:)  I painted it in gouache and used some color pencils too.

Illustration Friday - "Blanket"

Above is the color sketch I did and below is the final.

Here's another try at painting (gouache).  I was thinking of how kids hold onto their blankets when they're scared.  I think I like the color sketch better than the final.  I cut out the painting and put it on a black background in Photoshop.  I'm still trying to figure out if I like this???
