So Elliot are you working o a new Boxhead and Roundhead film?

Matt J said...

Excellent! The enlarged version actually makes me feel sea-sick due to the rolling 'horizon'.
I saw Gericault's 'RAFT OF THE MEDUSA' at the Louvre & noticed for the first time a tiny,distant ship on the horizon that the top most figure is of course signalling to-I'd never twigged this before looking @ reproductions. The canvas is IMMENSE yet the faint ship mustn't be larger than a bus ticket! It's really the true focal point of the composition but remains near invisible.

JP - I do have a film I want to make but I want to get some drawings done first.

Matt - thanks mate.
I have never seen the painting is real life so it's lovely to hear a tale about it.

This is a bit of a cheat actually.
It's merely the trees from the image below tinted blue in Photoshop and flipped 90 degrees.
I added some clouds in Painter...

Matt J said...

Genius! I figured it was REAL paint!

Elliot Cowan said...

It almost entirely is - it's touched up only a little bit and I changed the hue.

You're right, Elliot. It has been ages. Things are all good. I was kind of lost in the sea of no comments for a while. Starting to get back to normal again though. Hope all is good with you.

This has a really nice mood to it. I like the sparse composition.

Elliot Cowan said...

Andres - I'm not respectable enough for children's illustrations.

Don - Nice to see you again mate.

John - Thanks. What mood do you think it has?

Brian Sibley said...

If you're not respectable enough to be a children's illustrator then that's all the more reason you should be one!!

Elliot Cowan said...

Brian - I'm glad you agree!
