May 4, 2008 Illustration Friday


Roland had lost track of more than one watermelon seed the night before. Now the question remained... where had the other seed gone!!

The illustration Friday theme this week is SEED. My first idea was to do a seed pod illustration, alla Invasion of the Body Snatchers, something with a husband standing in the shadows with a giant seed pod, while his wife reached over to turn out the bedside lamp. But time was limited, and this idea seemed more creative than an homage to a movie.

As always I hope you will visit my website to view more examples of my work at www.ryanloghry.com, and please visit my retail store at www.ookybizniz.com, thank you for visiting.

I enlarged the image and noticed the plant is coming out from his navel, or I'm wrong?
hehe! in any case your characters always make me smile, your style is very consistent.

I'd say that is quite creative for seed, good job! I haven't posted in IF in so long and this 21 day challenge is keeping me busy!

This is great! I think the other one would've been cool too, but this one turned out very well!
