illustration friday: spring



Howdy everyone, here's my entry for Illustration Friday. Topic is Spring and I decided to do an Easter egg color kit. I don't think they design them like this anymore....though I haven't checked the stores. It's been a long time since I've colored eggs. I usually just wind up eating the chocolate ones.

Encouraged by the wonderfully talented Smook, I decided to include the very rough sketch along with the final painting. I wish the sketch looked nicer, but I just don't clean up my work sometimes. I usually work off of the rough sketch and already have in my mind what everything should look like. Don't know if that's the best method of doing things but it works for me most of the time.

Well I must get back to work. Happy Spring everyone!

Eren, this is simply gorgeous and absolutely beautiful!!!!!! And NO, I don't think they design them like this anymore either, cuz if they did, I'd go dye some eggs right now!

Smook said...

Wonderful illustration Eren! Fun colours and textures, and appealing design to the bunnies! It also brings back fond memories. If they did sell them like this still, they'd definitely be sold out (especially if the price was still 30 cents!) Great rough sketch too, I appreciate you including it.

Thanks for the plug too!

A very pretty painting. Those rabbits do a nice job of coloring those chicken embryo encasements.

ooh-I love the vintage fun of this. Very cheery and vibrant indeed. And if they did make kits like that they would be flying off the shelves in all stores. Outstanding work!
