Illustration Friday FREE


This is my entry for Illustration Friday's challenge. Your comments are appreciated.
I was thinking about some kind of Rapunzel's tower. Then a little firefly escapes and flies freely..
Not very original but, is there something more free than a firefly in the night?

This is very beautifully rendered, the colors are fantastic, and I think it expresses he theme very well. Good job.

Tiffy said...

I think the bright colors is enough to suggest free, out of the dark. I like it.

Alina Chau said...

This is beautiful!! Love the concept!

Don said...

Before I read the description, I thought it was aimed more at a person'd spirit being free... kinda' looks person-shaped, don't ya think? Either way it works with 'free' and looks very good. Great pallet choice.

the glow from the window is wonderful, as are the rich colors in the background and building. i love how you drew the free and fanciful movement of the moth.

Entiendo que son ¿polillas?
¡Me encanta su luz y libertad!

Tahnks everybody for your comments and sorry for my English.. I wanted to say firefly instead of moth...no light in a moth...isn't it?
Well, maybe in a jurassic-park-x-genetic-moth....

Holly said...

Love it. It is very beautiful.

String said...

Great colours and movement!

I think it's VERY original, contrary to what Rubio wrote. I agree with Don... the light trail looks like a person... I thought it had to do with free spirits also. But I like fireflies, too. Very nice.

Stunning! I can see a free psycotic fairy spirit and a firefly!

carla said...

The firefly looks like it's made the shape of a person...like a glowing spirit in the night. This is really a lovely illustration. I love the glassy effect on the sky.

rubio2d said...

thank you everybody for your comments...mmm Most of you can see a human-spirit shilouette in the firefly wave...curious,,it's not my intention at all but now, when I stare to the picture ..I can see it clearly!
Fantastic!

Your illustration is very mesmerising. Make me stare at it for a very long time.

Gracias a todos, la verdad es que ha quedado chula la imagen. Los brillos de la luciernaga le dan un aire muy mágico al conjunto. Es curioso que mucha gente ha visto una silueta humana en el halo de luz...
