hibernate

(click upon yon image to enlargen)

I took the Illustration Friday prompt word "hibernate" and tried something a little different this time. I got rid of the black lines that I usually have in my work, and tried to use shape and color to define things. Hope you like it!

Your work looks great without the black line.

Megan Moran Smith said...

I agree. Love the color and whimsy of your work.

Doug said...

many thanks, Bron and Megan!

Jules said...

Nice! I am always terrified to lose my black line!

I think it looks great too, and Im a bit like Jules, I like my black line...
mind you I like your work either way, its what you capture more than how you capture it that appeals to me most with your work, there is always a "life" to it.

I love how he has pencil on his ear even when he is sleeping, he must be an artist... :)

I agree, both look good. But I think I prefer it with the black lines - maybe it looks more hand drawn.

Jules, Janet, Yoyo and Judith.... thanks for the comments. I see some very stylized, flat color art that I really like. Thought I would give it a try. I still like having that line around things though. I guess it's my little security blanket. : )
