Oh Gravity...

This week's Illustration Friday topic was "gravity" and this is naturally the first thing that jumped into my head...naturally. If it's any consolation, Barry the whale led a good life. He was well respected within his pod and quite popular with the ladies if you know what I mean...and I think that you do.

Ah Barry... we hardly knew Ye. What a wonderful concept. I like the shading and the composition. And of course, I like Barry too!

I have whales in my image this week too! They must seem unable to defy gravity. The colours are perfect!

Nice style and enjoy the other work...keen wit...and let me say on your behalf I will be banning Moroccan influenced food from my house as soon as I get some and cross Morocco Mole from my list of favorite cartoon characters.

haha this cracks me up, did you by any chance get the idea from hitchhikers guide to the galaxy?

Adam said...

Wow, thanks you guys! I'm flattered by the response to this one. I had a lot of fun here.

Kathrine, yes the texture on this one is from photoshop...it's a noise filter applied to the whole image.

benconservato: that's cool that whales were on your mind too!

enandrews, nope, i've never read the book but i have heard good things.

brine, thank you for showing your support and putting the Morrocan ban into effect. That'll teach that kid not to mess with artists...that don't eat Morrocan food anyway.
