Illustration Friday: Total & Sprout

Total as in the german saying "total Banane", which is sort of similar to "totally nuts"...somehow. Well, just a quicky for this because this weeks topic just sucks big bananas!

But, and that´s more important, from this week on I´m trying to participate on a weekly base again. The hectic of the last months is mostly gone and I´ll upload one past topic illustration with the actual one. This week also included: Sprout. I had some fon with the topic, mostly because it reminded me of a childrens book I still own and absolutely loved as a kid. It was about a young girl who gets a little tomato plant. She puts it on her balcony and cares for it every day. It soon carries big red tomatoes. But one night a storm comes and the next morning the plant is gone ( I really suffered with her every time I read it!). In the end her neighbour finds the plant, brings it back to the girl and they eat some nice, delicious tomatoes. And this book was sort of an inspiration. Click for full view:

Watercolours have never been my friend so far. I started to work with them some weeks ago and I feel like I´m getting into it. Smaller areas aren´t that difficult, but my problem in this one was especially the sky. Maybe it´s the blue I used but for some reason I couldn´t get it stripeless. Oh well...

Tipps and critics always welcome!
