Fancy Animal Comparison

I drew a new face for my Fancy Animal painting. I'm not sure if I like it better or not but I'd better get started on the painting soon or I'll never finish this.

Fancy Animal assignment color comp

I'm taking Chris Oatley's Magic Box class on line. It's really great. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about making digital art.
It has taken me a long time to finish this first part of the assignment mostly because I got quite frustrated with learning photoshop. I think I am finally starting to get the hang of it.

Here is my contribution to this weeks Illustration Fridays topic Radio. I hope you enjoy it.

 This weeks topic for Illustration Friday was Beard. Mountain Goats have awesome beards!
When I was a kid I remember being amazed by my Dad's uncanny ability to spot mountain goats.
Any time we were traveling through the mountains Dad was always on the lookout for mountain goats. He would strain his neck to look out the windshield and would point at a mountain. "There's a mountain goat! And another one! and two more over there!" I'm pretty sure Mom took hold of the steering wheel on these occasions. My siblings and I would take the binoculars and look where he was pointing and sure enough we could see the tiny white specks on the mountains.

For this weeks Illustration topic Contraption  I went with a scene from the movie The Great Race.
This is one of Professor Fate's many contraptions that is doomed for failure. There are a lot of laughs in this movie. However I wouldn't recommend watching the entire movie in one sitting as the silliness can really drag on. It is better to watch it over two nights.

For this weeks IF challenge I decided to keep things simple. I used only five colors in my palette.
I also used only flat colors and didn't worry too much about making it perfect. Overall I'm pretty happy with the result and I think I captured the temptation that this cat is feeling.
