Illustration Friday: Match



"...as he held aloft the sacred torch, the shaman of the pygmy moles wondered what spirit visions he would view this night..."

Birthday: 21st August, 2006.
Method: MS Paint and some filters with Wacom tablet.
Comment: Obviously these are VERY small moles...who live in the desert...and save the matches they find for sacred rituals :)

lol. this is cute. i like how you used white as a showdow againts the black. nice twist.

as far as my process. sure. as soon as i have something, ill be sure to let you know. it sounds like a really neat project to work on.

i must warn you though...i dont work in any set particular way. i think its mainly because im still trying to figure out exactly what my style/voice is. ive been a graphic designer and web developer for a while now... illustration is new to me. so im still feeling my way around. :)

Cheers dex. It was done on the fly when I was very tired. My only thought was "I wish I could draw something more intricate, maybe a background...ah bugger it, hurry up so you can go to bed!" I would love to draw like Ximena Maier (http://www.ximenamaier.com/) but I figure I'll just keep practising and something will develop by itself :) Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hey Benji! I'm looking for a nice case now so I can carry my tablet around without damaging it. I reckon one of those folio cases would be about the right size. Hope to see you on IF soon!

Hm, you set up word verification for comments and spammers still get you? Or are they paying people now to do it for them? :p
