    "Lost Girl" painting...


    Click for larger version.


    The latest entry to Illustration Friday from the prompt "Lost." I was inspired by an anti-marijuana commercial (something along the lines of, "just tell your mom you forgot about her because you were stoned). I was originally going to have a city street corner background with a lot of very large people walking past her, but I decided to go more simple (mainly because that would have taken forever).

    The idea of a kid lost in such a busy, jungle of people really terrifies me. So, in a sense, this is a horror piece to me. So, I will have to add on to the story for this piece and make it a happy ending. She is scooped up moments later by her mother who (she didn't realize) was just right behind her getting ice cream.

    I was also going to use Painter, but I just feel so awkward in there, still. For example, I try to select and move a small area of my drawing, and it created a new "floating" layer, and couldn't merge it.

    So, I copped out and used Photoshop.

    Hope ya like!

    Nice work- I know what you mean about Painter vs. PS... its so easy going back to what you know.... but Painter is definitly still worth getting fluent with.

    thanks for sharing

    Well she does look lost alright, and I understand what kind of feeling you were going for... but it just doesn't have the same effect without the city street background. She almost looks comical just standing there with a balloon floating in space.

    Although seeing her tears on the bigger version makes me... makes me...

    Oh mommy why wouldn't you buy ME any balloons! Waaaaah....

    Cool activity, all I have to say is more empty space ! Overwhelm and isolate her with empty space. Try to keep it uneven though, equal empty space is trash.

    I was disapointed that this had nothing to do with LOST.

    Ah, dangit. Sorry about that. Someone else mentioned that and I meant to change that. My bad.
