The Red Balloon by MmeLizzard The Red Balloon by MmeLizzard
11" x 14"
prismacolor pencils on bristol

At look inside my head: Ok. So my thought process on this one is a little murky. I started of with an impulse whilst watching "The Big Lebowski" to draw a sort of flying "sunset" whale. The Dude listening to whale music sort of set me off. I dunno. Then the bones happened. Then the dragon tail, cuz (duh!) 'm obsessed with dragons. Then it started looking creepy to me, so I added little girl for an innocence factor, the balloon for focal point, and the tree (modeled after my kneaded eraser) to give her something to be distracted by while her balloon was being stalked. In the end it came out being a very weird piece, but oh well.

Yay! That means you're weird just like me! It's a fun place to be, trust me. ^_^

Thanks for continuing to stop by and check me out. You put a smile on my face. :heart: Are you ever going to post all those sky pictures you alluded to? ;) I'm being nice and patient, but I really, really want to return the fave love at some point. I'm racking up quite a lot of red in my ledger under your name. O_o

Ugh. I so need to upload a better picture of this. The little girl's dress is actually more salmon colored (if we talk crayola) than red. And I did a sucky job of cropping apparently O_o
