Illustration Friday - Parade


Well I actually did it, I wasn't sure I'd get to do an entry this week as I've had the flu really badly so have been sitting here feeling very sorry for myself. But I managed to sketch out an idea before the fever really set in and so because I liked it so much I made sure I finished it. It probably could have been a bit tidier but I'm quite pleased with it. The prompt for Illustration Friday this week was 'Parade' and ants came to mind as you often see them marching in a very well organised line. I thought it would be nice to make them kind of like a carnival or marching band. Even though I was sick I quite enjoyed this theme and was glad I could finish it.

Well, it looks like flu does not affect your good mood, this illustration is so lively and cheerful! A very festive parade! Good luck in your artistic plans, it is never too late to do what you like.

Sorry you had the flu. Hope you are feeling better... but you sure did manage a wonderful, happy image through your malaise, hee hee! Nice work!

I love this! Well done at completing it while feeling ill. it was well worth it! I have a parade of ants in my kitchen, not as jolly as this lot though, especially when I go and buy some any powder at the weekend! I've answered your question about the flickr slideshow on my blog comments, if you have any problems or I left something out just let me know!x
