The latest entry to Illustration Friday from the prompt "Lost." I was inspired by an anti-marijuana commercial (something along the lines of, "just tell your mom you forgot about her because you were stoned). I was originally going to have a city street corner background with a lot of very large people walking past her, but I decided to go more simple (mainly because that would have taken forever).
The idea of a kid lost in such a busy, jungle of people really terrifies me. So, in a sense, this is a horror piece to me. So, I will have to add on to the story for this piece and make it a happy ending. She is scooped up moments later by her mother who (she didn't realize) was just right behind her getting ice cream. ;o)
I was also going to use Painter, but I just feel so awkward in there, still. For example, I try to select and move a small area of my drawing, and it created a new "floating" layer, and couldn't merge it.
So, I copped out and used Photoshop. ;o)
Hope ya like!
