Illustration Friday - Climbing



I created the above image last night but as I was drawing it, I kept thinking about what would happen next in the story. Who was that person next to the house? Why is the boy climbing the cliff? The more I thought about it, the more I couldn't resist adding a second panel to the story...

I'm getting sweaty palms and wobbly knees just looking at that! It looks like a big climb for a little boy EeeeEK!

I love the light of the moon on his face. Your use of light and shadow is so well done!

very nice! terrific composition. It would seem that one would usually flatten out a character from that angle...but yours has so much dimension! Great job!

Nice illustration. It makes you want to come up with a story about what he doing up on that cliff. Is he coming of going???

This is great! I love the woodcut look.

I hope the animal he met in the second panel was friendly!

Absolutely exceptional. Perfect feel, mood and colors. I can feel the danger when he's on the cliff.
