IF: Yesterday


"Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground"
~David Icke


Working on painting a commission piece based on one young lady's many yesterdays with her dad
who died a few years back.

    1. Thank, Joanne, on all accounts. I've been playing with markers & crayons on paper to warm up and then trying to replicate the look in Photoshop. It has been fun experimenting.

  3. This is great, and thanks for the sneak peek at your monitor. How you shaped the rabbit is cool, and I love the bed so far too - great pattern and texture to it.

  6. I love the feel that the jump is at that point where the direction changes between up and down, where it's really fun to just float for a second. For me, you captured that weightless moment perfectly!

  9. This is really wonderfully drawn. It's very lively and vivid. I love the commission, too. I wouldn't mind something like that to remember my dad by.
