I.F. CARRY

Don't judge a kid by his leg size. Little Henry Honeycutt can carry an insane amount of preparedness.



Created for this Illustration Friday's topic of the week "carry."

  21. Great work! You really managed to drive the idea home with the vertical format. As always, your drawing, color choices and painting technique are superb.

    I'm curious: I love the cracked oil paint effect you use as a finish on some of your work. Do you use a filter to create that or is it done by some other means?

    1. Jim, Thanks for the nice comments. The crack is a hand painted crackle design that I created in photoshop. No filter just quite a bit of time. I then use the same pattern whenever needed.

  22. Thanks for the info. I wondered if perhaps you had just made it yourself. It's less heavy-handed then some of the crackle filters I've seen.

    Keep up the good work! I've been loving your art since I discovered a short time ago and I check in frequently to look for updates. You have an absolutely wonderful color sense.
