Illustration Friday: Return

Return to sender

Trace monotype for return

The top image is my submission for the week's Illustration Friday topic: return. The second image is the trace monotype I did that took me all of five minutes to do. The digital illustration took way longer and I was much more hesitant with it. Can you tell? I don't know if it was because I was dealing with layers and colors or what but I think I might like the monotype better. What do you think?


  1. Both are sweet and sad, but their personalities are just a bit different. The color version fellow looks almost like he expected it but is crushed anyway, while the penciled fellow just looks devastated.

    Love your banner!

  2. Both of them are incredibly sad, but I think the raw emotion comes through more in the pencil sketch. Well done!

  3. Thanks so much for your feedback! I think I like working on these Illustration Fridays.
