Illustration Friday: Strength


Strong women x 2: the birth of my daughter (2 plus years ago but still amazing...) as endured by my lovely wife, was the single greatest feat of strength and determination that I have ever witnessed.

Beautiful! The expressions are so calm and peaceful yet the heavy lines suggest something different. love the textures and the warmth of the muted palette.

Digital? Scratchboard? That's a solid piece of work. Love the hair patterning.

Thanks Jeope and all -
This image is ink with digital color (photo shop duotones). I've been feeling a pull towards stronger line art lately and have tried to dedicate my Illustration Friday efforts to this pursuit. We'll see how long I can manage the originals every week. Already not sure about the next one...

Cheers.
