Just a quick doodle


"The fields lay fallow. The pumpkin harvest had been exceptional this year. People had come and gotten the best pumpkins to take home to carve into Jack O Lanterns. Only the small and lopsided fruits remained. A lone crow landed on an orange gourd and cawed loudly into the still, moonlit night. Nothing answered."

In the 'better late then never' mode, I attempt to catch up with the rest of you. LOL. I finished the last of my traveling unpacking and putting away yesterday. I have a vague idea on my NaNoWriMo novel. I signed up for PiBoIdMo. (Picture Book Idea Month) Plus, I have a book to illustrate that final art is due to the publisher on February 21, 2010. So I have enough projects to keep me more than busy for the next month. Hee. One of these years I'll learn to simplify.

I like the atmosphere of this, how you've made the colors cool and soft in the moonlight. Nice light source!
I don't know if it is the way the paper is curling up in the scan, but the moon doesn't look circular, kind of squashed. Might be able to tweak the perspective in Photoshop at this point. Also it would be nice to see the moonlight shining off of the bird like you have done with the pumpkins.
The cast shadows are nice too, particularly along the bottom of the pumpkins/ground.
