Illustration Friday-Late



Late Night Creatures!!

I wasn't really sure which of these was most successful. The first is a mixed media piece, the second is watercolor with ink, and the last is just a pencil sketch. I think I like the pencil sketch the best, because if I had time, every week I would do an oil painting from my sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like these great little bats!
I like the sketch and the watercolor one the most. Although I like the buttons and elements of the mixed media bat. I am impressed with the fact that you took the time to make three different bats in different mediums.

Very entertaining. Don't know which to choose. All three.

They can be used in different ways... as they all have a unique character. Cute Candace.

I like the eyes in the first one - such character to them! But the second one is my overall favorite.

Dot said...

i like the second best, it's a little lighter so i think the colors work better. But all cute!
