IF Satellite WIP

This is what I am working on, today anyway. It is for Illustration Friday's prompt Satellite. I am still working on Paisley from last week also along with some sketches for another project. I thought that by now I would have more time to get the things I wanted to do done, but that hasn't happened yet. Maybe July will be better : ) no promises though, I just seem to be consistently inconsistent right now. But seriously I will try to start posting more often again.
I'm actually doing an under painting for this one which I tend to do when working traditionally but rarely do when working digitally. I think this one will benefit from the added step though. I am also in the process of redoing the Strange Pets piece with changes from the suggestions I received for it.  I hope to get it done pretty soon. It's time to finish up stray pieces and post the results. That's my goal for the next few weeks anyway. Thanks for visiting and leaving so many wonderful and kind comments. I really appreciate the support.


  1. Hello Karen
    I will be back tomorrow, but for now I wanted to say how much I like it, as is.

    It has that otherworldy look about it,
    Wonderful compostion too.

  2. I have to agree with the first comment, above. This has a cool, atmospheric quality in its simplicity!

  3. Hey Karen! It's coming along nicely! looks like it's going to be out of this world! You are so excellent at capturing the way clothing moves and stretches on a positioned subject. The lines in the shirt and pants are perfect! Can't wait to see the finished work.... no pressure tho ;O)

  4. Hi Karen, very interesting to use only two colors (almost three) for your illustration, the line gives the impression of an engraving.

  5. Wonderful details, very worthy of hours of telescopic inspection! Awesome!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! You are the best!!!
