Illustration Friday: Enough


Just how much is "enough"? If any of you have been to a Casino, you know how great it is to get payback after dumping all those quarters into the slot. For the very few times that I've been, one thing I've learned is knowing when to stop and get those theater tickets before everything is gone again ... but I always get greedy and want more.

Drawn on some napkins at a local Coffee Shop, then scanned and colored in Photoshop when I got home. Notice the patina from the napkin that I tried to keep. Also, I scanned the recycled cup holder and used it as a background element.

Great sketch, loads of action. And I really like your background idea. It's a nice way to break it up.

How fun, been there, done that and could not afford the t-shirt.

The fact that this was on a napkin really impresses me, turned out great.

Woohooo! Great action here! I've only been to the casino a few times, but I must admit the music of the one-armed bandit is hard to resist. This is extra-fantastic for doing it on a napkin and using a cup holder! Way to go!
