Dancing by Moonlight by KatGirlStudio Dancing by Moonlight by KatGirlStudio
“Captain Greyfur taught the Yellow Creature some old pirate dances and they would practice them together when the moon was full.”

We were given this passage in my children’s book class and asked to illustrate it. We were not shown the book nor told anything else about it.

Captain Slaughterboard taught the Yellow Creature some old pirate dances and they would practice them together when the moon was full.

Medium: blue lead and mech. pencil on Canson vellum colored with Painter x & Photoshop CS3
Class: Children’s Book Illustration
Project: Illustrating to enhance text
Completed: Fe. ‘08

This image is now available as a Fine Art Print in my Etsy store!

It's so nice, it really poped out from the frount page.
Though the only thing is that it's really hard to see what's actually in the picture, the colors are so close ^^'
But apart from that I love the stance and of course that it's from a children's book! YEAH YEAH!

thank you so much, its a mood piece so all the colors are analogous. On my screen it ranges from mid magenta to the yellow creature which is a greenish yellow blue

i was thinking almost more of a court dance style but that would be funny =^.^=

ahah yes that too.
It of course would make sense with their poses, of course I can't come to that conclusion and assume their square dancing. : )
