Illustration Friday - "Sugary"



  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Sugary" I was going for cute and morbid.  The whole idea for the illustration started because I just wanted to draw a witch in tights with red and white stripes.  That's how it started but it went in a different direction.  It took 5 hours and was done in Illustrator and Photoshop.
  The second image I did earlier this week when I was waiting for a couple of roughs to be approved.  I have robots stuck in head.  So here's my version of Lost In Space with little Will Robinson.  I changed up the robot, but also kept some of his design from the TV show/Movie.  It took about 6 hours and was done in Illustrator/Photoshop.  I might have spent too much time on my own illustrations this week, and not enough on paying jobs- but sometimes it's just too fun to stop:)

Oh Scott, I had to make sure that my spelling and everything was right before I posted this. OH MY GOSH!!! I'm just spinning over all this Sugary goodness! The cute little mama at the stove getting ready to do the unthinkable, and of course my very, very favorite Will Robinson from Lost in Space. My poor brain is on Sugary overload!!! All I can say now is FABULOUS, DELIGHTFUL, TASTY, DELICIOUS, AWESOME, and a STONE COLD GAS!!! Thanks for always bring it. EXCELLENT WORK!!!!!

What a fantastic illustration! The textures, colors and especially the expressions really make the piece. Maybe you didn't get "paid" for your work, but you created a killer piece for your book/site which I find always leads to more work. Great job!

Joanie said...

Amazing work! I love these illustrations, especially the one with the witch. It's cute and off-beat at the same time. very nice.

LaMa said...

Another great one! I love the little girl's face, she's like "don't do it!"

tusen said...

Great pieces, both. The witch looks especially evil, because of the contrast between her sweet appearance and her actions. I've never thought pink hearts may be so menacing ;)

Sean Ashby said...

Very, very cool. I love how it looks so pretty and innocent at first until you figure out what's really happening. AND I love that the teddy bear is getting sauteed, too.

Fatima Anaya said...

Jajajajaja the eyes of the little girl xD she looks so funny!

You are great! I love your style :D

Ratlion said...

Ha! 'Cute' and 'Morbid' work great together in the first illo! The expression on the girl and the teddy bear is priceless!

I think of the Powerpuff Girls when I see this picture. Awesome.

Hey Scott, I just wanted to say, thanks for the birthday wish! I really truly appreciate my friend. Have a good one.

Hey Scott - thanks again for stopping by! You're wowing me again with your new works - awesome as usual! Man is she really cooking that kid, ohmygosh (grin).

Hey if you have a bad conscience about creating illos for yourself - have you ever thought about licensing? You may be able to turn these guys into money. Send me an e-mail if you're interested, I can recommend a licensing coach!
