Wired



Charlie understood that costumes and gimics were necessary in his line of work. He got used to the idea of playing a female. He was used to the bow, the dress made him feel pretty, but he just could not understand why he had to wear a chicken on his head.
This is my piece for wired. I am going to noodle on it some more so it may change. I rely on line so much I thought I'd try just painting...I think it's lacking something.

Sorry, he's on a high "wire" so that's my connection for this week's word.

I like it!
It's got that nice, warm, circus-bear-riding-a-bike-
across-a-high-wire-with-a-
chicken-on-his-head kinda feeling to it.
You know what I'm talking about?
Of course you do.

Seriously though,
Good job.

I really like this story. It is cute. It is a really fun drawing. I really like the bear and his gesture.
I think something that would improve it is the color. The front feels different from the back. I think if the light from the background reflects onto the characters in front it would make the painting feel more unified. Really fun story!

hillarious! that somewhat sad though acquiesent look on his face. I think the chicken also does'nt understand why she has to sit on his head;)btw I agree with the post above. maybe you could make the colors around the figures a little bit lighter that makes it focus more on the bear.

I really love that you have a story to go along with your illustration. Since you are used to using line, you are probably having a hard time with your edges. Try to define them more and put some darker values in. Also, I am confused about what is going on in the background. Nice piece, overall.
