Illustration Friday-"Enough"

















I'm not too happy with this one. I did it twice, once in acrylic and once in watercolor and now I'm sick of it. It just didn't turn out the way I had pictured it and it looks overworked. Oh well, live and learn.

This is the most fun interpretation of "enough" I've seen so far. I think your art is very nice.

I like it very much--looks like the way I pack! Cute illustration, good response, she looks very intense. We're always our worst critique.

Sarah there are not ENOUGH Inklings in Austin!
We miss you and hope you are doing well.

Very fun interpretation of Enough.

Sarah, I think the composition works quite well for the theme. The colors don't have the vibrant quality your colors often have.

If this didn't match what you had envisioned, then the one in your head must have been really out of this world, because THIS one is WONDERFUL! :) I love the composition and funny details, and the coloring is awesome. It really tells a story!
