Sunday Cyclops

So I painted that little cycops doodle and am not terribly pleased with how it came out. it think i overworked it. The thing about watercolor is it's supposed to look effortless, and I'm still dabbing and rubbing and scrubbing at it like Acrylic or oil. Blaaah.





Anyways, I'm working on this assignment for the childrens book illustration class, and struggling. The assignment s to take a very normal scene or character, then add an element to it that makes it abnormal, or throws the viewer off, or adds an element of storytelling or danger. This is what I did yesterday and I think I'll try a different scene today, see if I can come up with something less terrible.






I'm working on another one that has to do with a swing set. Hopefully it will be less lame!
