Illustration Friday: Opposites


This is what I painted for this week's IL word: "opposites". I painted a vacationing fat cat from the view of a panhandler. I tried to play around with foreshortening a bit with the hand extending from the tourist's body to the tin cup with the cityscape in the background. To add a little intrigue, I show the back of the sign so that the viewer can use his/her imagination as to what it says.

This is great! I love the drawing. Not only do you nail the topic, but even the point of view is opposite what would normally be expected. Great job!

great take on the theme! i like that you did the view from the person asking for money with the tourist in full view.

nice point of view, good to see things from a different perspective. (although i think most people would have a frown on their faces?)

Nice water colors
