Illustration Friday - Frozen


Here's my entry for frozen. This is a new version of an old illustration I did years ago. After walking around most of this afternoon I has first had "Greetings From New England" but changed it "The Tundra" after I warmed up a bit. This was one of my first tries at doing my own lettering. I kind of like how the text came out but I'm not sure I like the placement. The penguin seems colder some how without it.

He sure is chilly. He does look much colder without the lettering. I would use that lettering style in the future, however, because it looks great on its own.

That little guy looks cold. I love how you did his beak and teeth...ahahaha. I like how you used the dots and spirals..nicely done.

I really like your line work and the way you did the background. I would not like to be where he is right now. :)

I agree with your take on this..he looks much colder being in that vast tundra swirling about him., but I do love the lettering on it's own...maybe it's moving it down to the bottom aligned in cool-tones? Just a thought to keep that cold feel. It definitely is a great style for the artwork. Awesome expression..you nailed it! : )

I agree, it's much more effective without the text, I think because there's much more windiness and it seems emptier and barren.

That's one of the funniest penguins I've ever seen, and penguins are sort of naturally funny creatures.
