15: Gimyowallet (a.k.a. "Daring")
My last Illustration Friday submission took fifteen minutes to draw. This one took about five hours from start to finish.
The week's theme – daring – gave me an idea almost right away. I wanted to draw a small, shy girl at a Spin The Bottle party, staring down the barrel of a two-litre Coke bottle with a tight gaggle of pointy-fingered, taunting kids hunched behind it. But I couldn't really make it work without reference, and even though Kerry volunteered to pose for me, I came up with a second concept instead – featuring this daring little man (above).
And most importantly: it was a ton of fun to do.
