Illustration Friday - FEET



I love anything to do with mythical monsters, such as The Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot. So this weeks theme of feet gave me an instant visual image of Bigfoot. Rather than just illustrate him, I thought it would be fun to put him into a situation dealing with the downfalls of having such big feet. I call this piece "WHY BIGFOOT IS RARELY SEEN IN THE DESERT". Created in Adobe Illustrator. Added the closeup of Bigfoot's head since a lot of the detail gets lost in the smaller picture...

i was drawn to the way you did his eyes- real good, funny expression. (thanks for thinking of something creative, instead of just drawing another set of feet.) Pretty special. keep em coming.

Your Bigfoot is very cool and nicely done! Thank you for the awesome comments on my blog. I used to airbrush too - I've enjoyed seeing someone else's transition from airbrush to vector art.

thanks Patrick! I'm glad you put up a close up! It looks even better!

Nice work Patrick, It kind of said, "Chewbacca" to me, and seeing from your post from a few days ago with your collection, I can see why! Great stuff!

I too am/was a Star Wars fan (I'm quite dissapointed by the prequels) but I had to sell my collection a few years back when money got tight. I got a good deal though.
