Illustration Friday: Rambunctious


Epic battle between nutcracker and squirrel. . . this is definitely the most "rambunctious" painting I have. I just finished this piece for one of my last assignments this semester. I was playing with some new styles and techniques. I had a lot of fun doing this one. I'd love any comments.

This is pretty crazy! I love the different realistic nuts all over the place. I like how you handled the line quality and the wash texture. :)

Matt, this turned out great. I love the nut craked in half, dead on the ground while his buddy cries unto the heavens, "Why!?!"

What could be scarrier than a giant squirrell with laser vision? I can't think of anything.

Your work is muy atletico, no kidding. Lively.

There's an episode of Robot Chicken in which Mr. Rogers is Japanese and the magic train is attacked by Godzilla which this is brining to mind. But many things remind me of Robot Chicken.
