Oliver's Invention by Katmomma Oliver's Invention by Katmomma
Assignment for Illustration class. The theme: Invention.

Since my head is still up in the clouds with bunnies....I figured oh what the hell :XD:

This is Jack & his one son, Oliver.
Oliver is quite a creative and inventive little fellow. He put together his own custom bicycle.


This was done with a very similar technique to "The Raggy Foxtrot", with the exception of normal layers being used instead of multiply. It was a fun rendering experience. :D

Thanks for looking :hug:

Wow! This looks really detailed! I think the colours play a very important role here, the overall use of brown tones really sets the mood on this picture! Nice one :)

This is awesome!

I run a furry steampunk social hall on SecondLife, and I'm putting up great works of steampunk or Victorian furry art on the walls.

Would you mind if I displayed this work there, with a link back to your gallery here?

Sincerely Marilyn, have you ever considered on making an illustrated book for children? I see another opportunity area for you. Or children's room decoration, your works get better and better each single day, gosh, I dunno what do you think, but as I told you in the very beginning, Im positive you'll reach far.

I have considered it. Problem is, I have such spontaneity with my projects, I don't know if Id be able to sit down and finish it all the way through with school going on and such. But when I get out of school, i might set something aside to do :D

I love the colors, and their expressions are great! Jack looks really proud.

Ehm... What's 'rendering'?
Reply
:iconkatmomma:
Katmomma Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2009  Professional Artist
Thank you! :hug: Rendering is a term used to describe how something is made to look 3 dimensional from a 2 dimensional concept. It is often confused with shading....while "Shading" only describes shadow, Rendering incorporates both shadow and light. Render is the more appropriate term.

This is really beautiful. Such a cute scene, and your excecution is brilliant - from the almost sepia-like colours to the strong sense of life and motion in the characters, it's a truly great piece. :thumbsup:
