Summer Time!

My last couple of final critiques did not go as well as I had hoped. My painting final blew, and my illustration final I guess was more lackluster than I thought.

I really liked it, but it has some technical issues that most didn't have an issue telling me about. I guess a critique is a critique, but I guess I was more in love with the piece than anyone else.

Based on the issue of domestic violence, I wanted
 to explore a darker side of my usually lighthearted work. I liked the initial sketch so much that I'm going to try to work on it again this summer and make it better. I like the illustration board that I was working on, I'm going to use it more often.

Gouache, ink and colored pencil on illustration board.
