sweater – illustration friday

I give you ‘the barnyard sweater gang’.

So, since I’ve been stuck on funny looking chicks, I figured why not also dress them in poorly fitting sweaters and throw in some of the tall ones I’ve been sketching.

It’s interesting that just by the direction they’re pointing (two going one direction and one the other) there’s some tension or emotion implied. I added just a hint of eye direction to the one on the left that seems to enhance this idea.

These chickens probably need to be translated to t-shirt designs in cafe express…

I have no idea where this idea came from. I must have seen something that reminded me of Thelma and Louise so that it popped into my head when I was pondering this one.

I played around with a different brush on this one where I just layered all the color over the background color so that it has something of a block print texture mixed in there.

The line work is pretty simple compared to the last couple I’ve done, which is something I thought would be fun to play around with more. I have no idea why I keep drawing chickens, but for some reason I’ve got these short, squat little guys stuck in my head, so I guess I should keep drawing them until they go away.
