Illustration Friday – Packed

[26 Sep 2008 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 6,623 views ]

The Bots are all packed for vacation! I didn’t like the way the colors turned out on the original, so I tried some more muted versions. What do you think looks better (scroll down to see)? I tried to use minimal colors in this. I may still play around with the colors because I’m just not loving them.

    These bots look like they will have a fun trip! I personally like the colors of the one with the blue background. Fun characters!

  • Vanessa Brantley Newton [] :

    ooh I want to go and I’m packed! This little guy is so cool. I love your very soft colors it works so well with the line. Excellent!

  • SweetMissDaisy (Anna Wight) [] :

    What FUN! =) I like the second illo, with the soft colors. His little robot flag is the best!! “Peace-Out, Homeyzzz!” =)

  • Cookie Sunshine [] :

    I hear Elton John singing Rocket Man! This is wonderful! I think this was such a fun topic. There are so many different ideas this week. Your work is adorable. I’m adding you to my list of blogs that I follow.

  • krisztina maros [] :

    goodbye little robots, have a nice trip! :)

    so lovely illo! i’d prefer the last colour-version (‘mute’).

  • Chica and Jo [] :

    Art truly is in the eye of the beholder. I love the bright blue background and other colors in the top one! You seem to have fans of all of them though!

  • murphy girl [] :

    jeez….my boring old family always moved on a truck.

  • Juan [] :

    Hey Nancy! Excellent work again. I prefer the second version, with soft background :)

  • Michael [] :

    liking the middle colours. there’s only two suitcases. is that why the middle robot looks a little worried. nice work. and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  • Diana Evans [] :

    Hi Nancy!!! this is wonderful…all your cute bots are ready to go!

  • Hello, I'm Sally. [] :

    I actually like the colors of the first one. My only suggestion would be just a touch lighter on the blue back ground. I do like the muted one too, even the one with the teal background, but maybe a touch lighter on that one too. Anyway, they are very cute how ever you do it!

  • ArtSparker [] :

    I like the first colors. I think in general it's very appealing, but wonder if a darker band for the figure s& rocket to stand on might pull it together?

  • Honor Bowden [] :

    I love your bots as always! Think the second piece is my favourite. (I just grossed out my husband with your flayed skin cheeseball! hehe)

  • Ellen Byrne [] :

    Very clever work!

  • ValGalArt [] :

    gee this is so hard because they all have there own special feel! I would be hard pressed to choose because the top one is awesome and pops but the muted shades are hip and pretty too. I’m no help :P I love everything you do!

  • Sylvia Jenstad [] :

    I think all are great…too cute… I’m sure whatever the colours they will have a great time…

  • Eric Barclay [] :

    Oh what fun! I’m really digging the color scheme of the top one– but all of them work great. Excellent!

  • Rrramone [] :

    Is there room for one more??

  • bobo [] :

    After a long thoughts, I think I’ll vote for the last one! Btw, I like their suitcases and those stickers!
