IF: Craving - Adelia Holds Out!

How does this image fit? Well...let's see. The lil' characters were craving them some cupcakes - but their plan had a serious flaw as none of them match up to Adelia's stature.

The final version of a sketch I did this last weekend for Illustration Friday. I had been hoping to finish it - and I finally did...with a day to spare! The word this week was climbing and I thought of the little square characters I draw and what if they were climbing all over Adelia trying to get at something...I did the sketch last Friday and cleaned it up on Monday. From there I did several revisions (trying to get the character placement right and I also had to correct a lot of the perspective)...I started the color yesterday and today it's finally done!

These look like dangerous cute animals, that turn into monsters with big mouths and teeth, when not getting what they want! (but that's my mind) BE CAREFUL! ;-)
fun illustration!

This is super great! I LOVE how it looks like a vector illustration, but I think it's really painted? Not sure, but I love the blurring of what looks like computer drawn is really not.

Glad I stopped by!
