Illustration Friday: Is it smoke, is it flame, or just plain lame?











This old bag is smokin'!

Okay, I know it's lame, but so's the topic, whatever the heck it is. Plus, it's late and my brain is fried. Oh look, a shiny object!

Please can we have a GOOD topic next week.

Thank you.

It's funnny, the last three topics were ghost, wind, smoke... can we have something with some opacity, please?

Funny! Have you heard the saying about money burning a hole in your pocket? Here the purse has gone up in flames! Coins fused with melting plastic cards... this one is for my sister(she would whack me good if she read this)!!!
Heheh!

Call it what you want and be unhappy about the topic but the truth stands....this is a beautiful painting!

So? Why do you think this is lame? I guess you already said, personally, I really like it. So, if that means anything... quit being down on yourself.

Great colors and lighting here. And I like the connection to the topic.

Yep, the topics could be better. Of course, I haven't submitted any suggestions, so I can't say anything. I just make some oblique connection and go off on my own, largely ignoring the topic.

Yes, this was a difficult topic! I agree...but this is a fantastic piece to fit it!

Oh come on, you may not like it, but the burning bag needs a frame-beautiful work!

Hi! I really love the bold colors and the loose paint work. I think this painting is a winner!

I actually love it. Great colors, especially the warm orange. Can't wait to see what you'll paint when you get a subject that you actually like. :)
