Illustration Friday - Subtract


He loves me, he loves me not.

This is a page from my sketchbook with my ideas for this week's theme 'Subtract'. I had wanted to choose just one and work it up in watercolour but couldn't make up my mind which one to go with and being a bit late in posting this week, decided to just outline the drawings in ink and 'quickly' add colour with pencils. I should have known better - it probably took four times as long as one little watercolour would have!! Click to enlarge the image.

  2. But it was worth it because it tells a great little story. And the technique is charming.

  14. Argggghh! I cannot take the suspense. So, does he love me or love me not???

    Super adorable! Your "quick sketches" are better than some finished pieces I've seen in books. :)

  15. Oh no! I'm glad you shared them all! They're so cute and I think they all go together so well. It wouldn't have been the same with just one image, it's like you see the little guy playing, almost like a cartoon. Good job!
