Illustration Friday: Caged

Here's my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme! I tried a bunch of new things with this work. First off all, I painted the whole image on Illustration board, and realized I love watercolor paper a WHOLE lot more! I also tried to work some colored pencils over that, but I wasn't really pleased with the texture it added to the water color, so another lesson learned there! What I did like however was all the digital editing to the piece. So slowly but surely, I'm figuring out a way of working =)

Anyway, I'd love some critique on this! Let me know what you think.


  1. very cool illustration. great colors and technique.

  2. Hello Joshua :) This is fantastic work! A great idea, and I just love her face expression.

  3. It looks like the woman's hair forms cages for the birds without keeping them captive. Is that right? It's an appealing and unique concept.
