This guy's my most recent illustration, finished just the other day on my laptop. For my Illustrating Literature class we were assigned the story The Ransom of Red Chief by O. Henry. Great story and a lot of fun to visualize. This is what I suppose the cover might look like. I would encourage you to read the story! It would be nice to hear some feedback on whether you feel it works for the story or not...and it's just a good read anyway. I'm finding I really, really like narrative illustration.
And finally an ink drawing I did in my first semester for my Intro to Illustration class. We were simply asked to portray an animal of our choice doing a some human activity. For some reason I liked the idea of a croc as a detective of some sort. He kinda reminds me of Sam from the Spawn comics I read growing up.
Hope you like them!
