Just in time for Halloween

The Bride of Frankenstein. Illustration Friday's word for this week was 'puppet'. I wanted to show a more realistic view of someone being used as a puppet by someone who has control over them. In this painting her marionette  strings have been cut freeing her from control

This assignment was to use extreme perspective and to put a creature in it that fit the perspective. I wanted to do an old black and white (sepia in this case :) ) movie, but reversed.

This weeks Illustration Friday word was "Wish". The assignment was to make it look like it was pieced together out of flat pieces of paper.

I decided I wanted to do a wishing fountain from the fishes point of view.
