Illustration Friday - Hierarchy


Here is my Illustration Friday attempt for this week's theme of hierarchy:


I thought I'd try a slightly lighter touch than last week, so tried out a new approach with watercolour, quite roughly applied, and then a line added with a graphite stick, like before (make marks a wee bit richer and wider than a standard pencil).

As a style, it's rather more 'cartoony' than is appropriate for my usual illustration work, although once it was done, I realised that it is a lot like the work I've done in the past for children's chapter books.

I like the loose style of this illustration..very expressive and funny. I so enjoyed meandering through your wonderful artwork! I love seeing your experimentation and the results...thanks for sharing!

I'm liking this approach. Scary and funny at the same time.

It´s a perfect "cartoony" style, and I like the colours. This is great, Lynne, and I think this is more satisfying, if I may say it, than "theater" post. I love your b&w "children´s chapters books" illustrations. Excelent as all your work. And thank you for your comments.

This is cool, nice sense of size and weight being used while maintaining a balanced composition... and really fun.
Nice Lynne

Thank you so much everyone. I was a little unsure about the success of this one, so it's lovely to have such warm and generous feedback.
