Pure Imagination

So there I was, listening to Maroon 5's version of "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The one with Gene Wilder, not Johnny Depp. Anyways, I usually don't like when songs are redone by other people, but I really like this one.

I was listening to it, and then it struck again!!

The exact pose and style and colors, they all came to me at once! I sketched it out and brought it into Illustrator. It turned out pretty good I think, but I'm still a novice when it comes to doing drawings in Illustrator. I figured out some techniques and stuff. It really is fun working with vector art, I could work on this piece forever, but it's my birthday and I have other things to do.

"There is no- life I know- that compares to Pure Imagination"

Alice, falling down the Rabbit hole...

So remember when I said that I was going to draw Alice, from Alice in Wonderland? Well, that's exactly what I did. I didn't know how I was going to do it at first. Was I going to do it like I did Ariel, or what? The other day however, I was awakening from a nice nap, and it suddenly came to me, the exact pose and style and everything. I quickly got up, sketched up my idea and brought it into illustrator. At first it had line work on it, but I decided to be daring and get rid of all my line work.

So it's been decided, I love Vector Illustrations.
