Subterranean Sparky – Illustration Friday

I don’t know why, but this is the only thing that came to mind when I read this week’s Illustration Friday theme. And, since it is Sparky, it just seemed natural that he’d be carrying a canary in case of gas. Why is he concerned?… who knows… maybe he had gas station burritos for lunch.

I experimented a little with using a wet media type brush to simulate layers of wash (somewhat like dye). Also experimented with a very limited palette to minimize complexity, since the line work is so strong. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the end result.

    I’m digging the limited palette and increased yellow saturation on the canary. Nice.
