Illustration Friday - Subtract

It's Illustration Friday again, and that means I've done a painting.

Here's one that is a slight play on words for this week's word- Subtract.

I originally wanted to have a robot in there because, well, robots are cool, but I went with something a bit more realistic in the end.

I wasn't sure if the image conveyed what it's intended, which is that somebody 'subtracted' (haha, I could make a living out of these jokes... ahem) the difference engine, so I added the Crime Scene banner and the police car in the background.

Ah well, it's kinda pretty looking for something I did anyway. But I think I'll steer clear of anymore programmer jokes from now on...

Dust Roamer

Sometimes I have half an idea for an image and can't quite get it to gel. This picture is one of them. Bits I like, others - meh.

Woman's face

Just a random picture of a girl. Nothing special.

I've decided to start using Illustration Friday as a springboard for some creativity. I often work best when my mind is free to go to random places.

Anyway, the word of the week is Legendary, and the first things that came to mind were the ancient Greek myths. One story has always inspired me, ever since I was a little pup, and that was the story of Jason and the Argonauts, so it's fitting that this should be my first picture for IF.

Freaky swamp creature

You can tell it's late at night because I'm drawing weird stuff...

Anyway, My Wacom tablet arrived and this is my first creation - a strange fawn-like thing rising from the depths of a swamp. I'm sure it made sense to draw it at some point...
