illustration friday: strength


This week's illFriday topic is Cows. Cows! Ok, so it's really strength. Strength like a cow! I've been playing around with last weeks illo and came up with this. Been on a sci-fi kick lately since Episode III came out on dvd and Battlefront II came out for xbox. It's a freakin' fanboy overdose and I'm running out of veins. I even lured Jenn into watching all 6 episodes with me. She's never seen any of them. So it was a kick watching this whole new universe unfold right in front of her. Almost like seeing it for the first time myself. We watched it in chronological order instead of the original/prequel way. And I must say that it was a different experience for me. The original still looks great despite its age and the noticeable cg add-ons. I've even developed a better appreciation for the prequels. It might not have been the way I had envisioned it, but it sure was entertaining eye-candy. Yoda is my hero.

Look! More cows!


More of me playing around with this idea.

Funny stuff (text too) and I like your choice of perspective... did you photograph that with a massive fisheye lens?

Your stuff's got it goin' on, Sick - and I really love your artistic commode logo! I surfed your site... its all excellent... like Kyle Baker channeling Bruce Timm, with a heavy SoCal infusion. Keep it up - I'll be back.

Great stuff YOU GEEEK!! Just kidding of course. I wanted to seriously to spend about 2G on a Boba Fett costume for halloween but my wife forbade it!!

Is BATTLEFRONTII out for OSX yet?

Secret Creatures said...

Nice cows. Like the variations, and the sky. Had to pay some respect.

constanthing said...

Great fisheye effect ... great idea ... Great!!!

Alina Chau said...

YEAH!! More cows toon! I love the series a lot!! Cool design and fun storytelling there! Soooo ... what will the aliens do to the cows ... after they captured the cows?

Jeope said...

The three-parter is awesome. I laugh thinking this is all cows do in a day. Wake up. Eat. And get abducted at night. Wake up. Eat...

Pickledog said...

Super Fun! Crazy cows.

Lily and Lucy White said...

I am jealous of your fiancée seeing the whole six yards for the first time. To see it again for the FIRST time would be about as good as seeing a cow beamed up by an alien spaceship!!! Cheers! Lily.

chacha said...

Katrina said...

I love it. You're work is good. Wish I could do things like that.
