Illustration Friday: Hybrid

Illustration Friday topic: Hybird

Come one come all to see the "Wondrous Wanda ride and play her Hybrid UniBaseCycle"

It's interesting that in considering a hybrid topic I landed here.  I often assign hybrid creature creation in my character design or photoshop classes, and it is always a favorite assignment. But I took a different route here.  

The drawing is a hybrid of sorts, traditional first (ink, paint, pencil) then digital manipulation (photoshop)

    1. Cindy, thank you, and I agree I don't think I could master such a trick. That's why I draw them instead.

  3. That would be a difficult act to follow...in a hybrid sense...both the act of playing the instrument you're riding or riding the instrument that your'e playing...and not forgetting the act of doing a better drawing than this!

  4. Hi Alicia, I like your work, it's admirable how you can draw an entire architecture perspective and something "weird" like this. you have a wide range expressive!!!
    I like how you announce this one,
    old-style circus shows.

    1. Roberto, Thank you so much for your kind words, I just love to draw, there are times when I feel like I should settle myself to one particular style for continuity of work, but I can't help myself, so many beautiful ways to see and express the world around us.
