Illustration Friday - Skyline

This is my first one and a quick one.
I spent over an hour last night sketching out ideas.
Had a few ideas and this was a detour from my first idea. (Nothing like this one really!)
Keep posted for more - illustrated differently too.
This one I did in Illustrator 10

Title: "Party Invitaion"I am having a ball with this theme. I wanted to be a bit different.
The second illustration is the original idea before I got distracted with the party illustration above.
This Illustration is done in Painter.
That is a character of me painting a skyline.

Title: "Romantic Skyline"

I like both ideas! Well done! :D

I love your take on the second illustration, too. The first reminds me of Valerie Walsh's a little -- and I see she's commented so you must've seen it already. Nice work.

THANKS EVERYONE
I AM LOVING PLAYING WITH YOU ALL

Suzy said...

I love these. Especially the bottom two. Very unique and super cute!

These are really fabulous! I especially like the second one for its very creative concept and the painterly look. I also love the grey tones. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

That pen get's heavier and heavier, but she still manages to keep on drawing! Very clever.

A nice comparison of two totally different treatments from 2 totally different software applications.

I use Illustrator for my work, but also have Painter. My problem is though when I open up Painter I feel so guilty because I need to get back into my usual oil painting, which I am avoiding at the moment.

Your images are great, the painting is beautiful!

Kayleen Stewart said...

THANKS FOR THE NEW COMMENTS EVERYONE.
TONY - THAT MADE ME GIGGLE, ITS USUALLY MY EYES GETTING HEAVIER.

GABRIELLE, I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN BUT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO JUST DO SOMETHING RATHER THAN BEAT YOURSELF UP ON WHAT MEDIUM YOU SHOULD BE DOING. I AM MORE PRODUCTIVE THAT WAY & ENJOY MORE TOO.

hey there kayleen!

i love the romantic vision, a bit of a dreamers sense!

;)

Gabrielle said...

Kayleen, I know what you mean! I blame it on my muse, she is my worst critic ;o)

I'm thinking I may spend some time this afternoon with paper and graphite. Thank you for your words of encouragement.
