An image of Mr. Toad from The Wind in the Willows came to mind for the theme of cars.
I want to experiment with a few things painting this Illustration. I won't get it done this week so I thought I would go ahead and post the drawing. If I finish it I'll post it later.
I also have a color sketch started. So far it has been done in Painter with the Simple Water & Watercolor brushes.

bringing spring and lots of green with her. If you live in the
eastern U.S. you know she played a trick on us last week.
Summer one day and it was winter the next.
I still have dozens of little touches that I would like to finish
on this. Shading, highlights and so on. I don't know if I will
have time to do it this week so I thought I would go ahead and post it. I really wanted to try this in actual watercolor. I may go back sometime and try it.
I did this in the Painter once again with the charcoal and conte
I always like to see people's sketches and how pieces progress
to the final image so I thought I would show mine on this. If you click here it will take you to a page showing the thumbnails.

This little bunny tripped over his garden hoe and spilled his basket of carrots everywhere. Can you help him pick them up by counting them? There should be a total of 12 carrots.
It was kind of a tough topic this week. I racked my brain most of the weekend trying to think of something. About the only thing I could come up with was what might be a sample page from a counting book.
Again, I did this in Painter. I used mostly the charcoal, conte & chalk brushes.

This is just a quick little spot sketch I did and painted in Painter with the 'simple water' brush and conte brushes.
I apologize to everyone that has tried to view my entry this week and it wasn't there. I am not sure what is wrong. It is there one time and gone the next.

Skunk wasn't too mad.
I tried something a little different this week.
I wanted to get more of a classic style. I did a
pencil drawing and used mostly the 'new simple
water' brush in Painter for the color.

I would resubmit this one. If I find some inspiration and
time I might try another illustration for this week.
This was painted in Painter IX using pastel and charcoal brushes.

children's book illustration for awhile.
I thought I might use the topics on IF to
inspire me to build up my portfolio.
I scanned in pencil drawing and used
Painter to add color. I tried to stick with
the pastel & chalk brushes to give it a

I will have more to this site as time
goes by. I painted a pencil drawing

lettering and lens flares with
The program I used to create the
lettering and glow was CorelDraw,
a vector program like Illustrator.
I used the drop shadow tool for the
glow behind the lettering & burst.
I also used Corel Photo-paint for
