Evening Surprise by wick-y Evening Surprise by wick-y
My first Illustration class assignment!  The teacher gave us this short story by Hillary Clay called Evening Surprise as a prompt:


Shimmery stockings stretched over shapely thighs—a perfect backdrop for a body-skimming cocktail dress. Glamour radiated from the ends of the diamond earrings to the tips of the spike-heeled shoes. As a shadowed eye surveyed the mirror’s reflection, painted lips pursed with pleasure.

Suddenly, a voice cried out from behind, “Dad?!”



I think I did alright I guess?  In dunno, I like the coloring but the guy's face is terrible.  I've been staring at it for sooo long though, who knows what it'll look like to me when I wake up.  The teacher seemed to like what I had done in class so hopefully I get a good grade on the finished product.  Really loving class though, it's definitely forcing me to experiment more.

14x14 in, watercolor wash with ink and colored pencil over

I love the picture xD and the Dad's face looks really great and the surrounding looks top notch (: and I really love the mirror: how it reflect to the daughter.

I would defiantly say you captured the moment well and I like the way you used the warm and cool colours to create frames around each part of the image. I found my eye moving around the outside first and then to the mirror, so I feel like I got the same surprise that the girl did~:aww:

Oh awesome, thank you so much!  Yeah I was trying to make it so first you see the girl's reaction and then look around the edges and finally see the guy, so glad it worked.
