Dance – Illustration Friday

Click for a bigger and better image!

Here it is, late Thursday afternoon, and I am FINALLY completing this week's Illustration Friday. I decided to take a short break from drawing (and the computer) this week, but had to follow through with my promise to myself to complete each and every challenge! So...better late than never! I didn't draw a sketch this week, rather just "doodled" in Illustrator and came up with my dancing frog. Nothing spectacular...and, rather a quickie. I guess you could say doodling with no direction was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday.

How did you ever get that rippling water texture?

What could be cuter than a froggie ballerina! And what could make a nicer combination than the green and pink...she's got grace and preppy taste!

I'd say the doodling ended up finding its direction just fine. Great froggy tutu. Wonderful sky, grass, and water.

doug...I created the water effect by first using the Brush Strokes filter and then the Liquify filter in Photoshop. Glad you like it!

What a cutie! Is the interpretation that everyone can be the happy dancing queen on her own little island? ;)
In that case, I need an island!
