IF 2006.03.03 - "Insect"

I worked on two versions of the word this week. Two because I didn't much like the first one. They both wound up feeling rather graphic and still weren't what I originally had in mind. Also, since I was making it up as I went along with no clear goal beyond "buggish" in mind, I didn't take any screenshots of the process. Here they both are (clickable):





And my daughter's take on this week's word (click to see full picture):



Comments are always appreciated even if they aren't always replied to.

I really enjoy the look of these a homage to the ladybug! So original the spiraling worm one!

I really like these. I especially like the clean style and the realistic look. Very nice.

P.S - Your daughter's picture is very cute. I think she has a career ahead of her.

They're both wonderful - I cant choose a favorite. And Jordyn's is sooo cute - she definitely got her talent from her daddy! :)

collin i always love your amazing work!!! your unique perspective is so appealing and i love reading your posts. You should feel so happy that your little girl wants to emulate you, that seems incredibly good for a small one!

The top one is interesting and they both have a great style, but the lower one (of yours) is just plain cool! I REALLY like it!

I like them both, but loved the second one - looks like a game I've played on yahoo (and sucked at royally).

So colorful, and filled with fun! Great illo!...and, your daughter's illo is fantastic! I see there is a lot of talent in your family!

I like them both... But, I find the second one to be a little scary... Sort of like they're marching to munch away on my decomposing corpse... I know, I know, if I am dead, what do I care? But still, I'm rather attached to this old bones & flesh.... My Gods I'm so delusional. lol.
