RE: No Shave November
I have been updating the original post with the newest illustrations but I realize it doesn't pop back up for anyone as a new post. So i'm going to start posting them as new posts instead. But if you want to see them all together go to instagram and search #noshavedrawvember I'm tagging all of my illustrations with that tag.
Food and foam now get stuck in your beard!?
RE: No Shave November
@mountainbeehive oh giving all your illustrations mustaches would be fun too! Thanks for the compliment! I’m having a lot of fun with this idea, I was inspired after my first participation this year in Inktober. I want to take these into photoshop and color them too
No Shave November
If you haven't heard of no shave November, its a challenge, typically for men, to grow your facial hair without shaving for the entire month. From their twitter "#LetItGrow & donate your monthly trimming costs to fight the good fight. No-Shave November aims to eradicate all cancers, with all hair, all the time."
So what I thought would be a fun challenge and way to participate would be to do an illustration of a character participating! So through the Month of November I will be doing #noshavedrawvember on my instagram page. I'll post the illustrations in this thread too. I happen to have grown a beard a time or 2 so I know some of the challenges haha. I can't wait to see how crazy this guys beard gets, I would love to see anyone else's illustrations of bearded characters!
Start with a Clean Shave
A couple days in and you've got a mean 5 o'clock shadow, looking pretty cool!
Not feeling so cool now! My God, the itching!
Your beard is patchy bro, fill it in!
Your better half will be pullin those stragglers!
Finally after the itching and patchiness and plucking a real beard.
RE: Those freelance job sites for illustrator - yeh or neh?
I say neh, I did a job on Freelancer once for the same reason, to "dip my toe in". Basically the person was looking for an illustration for a T-shirt it was pretty simple. Essentially it was an open competition and if they picked your art you would get paid. Most submissions were manipulated stock images, original illustrations that were submitted were then taken by others and manipulated and resubmitted for the same job. A manipulated stock image was eventually chosen. Other illustration jobs on the site were very cheap. You'd be better off spending time doing your own personal project.
RE: Fall - WIP (The battle of leaves)
Nice work, love the characters expression, she looks so proud! I think the blue background with the shapes of those trees looks a little scary or ominous and it conflicts with how happy she looks. Although from your description she was battling them so it could have been a pretty dramatic battle haha! Great job, can't wait to see it finished!
RE: Fall WIP (leafpile)
Love the process here, tree to the right looks much better, only a few small things for me. The trees in the background seem really full for fall compared to the tree the kid is swinging on. The leaf piles almost look like Hay piles or a bush, maybe the shapes within the piles could be a little more varied. I'm really digging this illustration great job!
