IF: multiple

My Illustration Friday contribution for "multiple". Multiple legs, get it?

I usually have a plan for an illustration, do some sketches, figure out the composition and so forth. But sometimes, as with this one, I had no idea where it was going. They turn out to be the most fun. I started with just wanting to do something with it's eyes very far apart and that was the only thing I planned, the rest just showed up. I get lead sort of subconsciously through the whole thing not knowing what it is going to be in the end.

Well, I still don't know what it is, but it does have multiple legs.

If you happened to visit Feed on Wednesday, February 6th, then you saw this there. If you don't know, Feed is an awesome animation and visual FX blog from Stash Media that showcases cool work from that industry. I visit there almost daily with my kids and we check out all the cool videos they have posted. They also have an "ongoing art project" where you can design and submit your own Feed banner and the "most intriguing submissions will be displayed randomly across the top of the site".

Originally, I thought I would do one and send it in, but then I thought wouldn't it be wicked if my kids designed a banner and I sent that and they actually used it! Well, that's just what we did. I helped with the scanning and Photoshop, but my son and daughter (ages 4 and 2) did the rest. Now I'm not sure if the Feed people felt it was "intriguing" enough to use or if they just didn't want to disappoint little children, but either way using it made the day of those kids and their dad.

Thanks to Stephen Price.

My First Post

This is the very first sketch I did in 2008. Now it is my very first post on my blog. Yeah that's right, I have a blog now.
