IF - fast


For Illustration Friday this week - Penquins like to go fast down snowy hills on sleds and skis!
I had so much fun creating penquins for last week IF challenge, I decided to do them again. This was created entirely in Illustrator.
Now, I have to choose between this one and last week's Frosty's Ice Cream shop for my holiday promo card. Which one would you choose? Which image do you think is stronger? Send me a comment and vote for your favorite! I'd love to hear from you!

They are both absolutely adorable!!! If I had to choose, I'd choose the penguins on sleds one. I just think the perspective is really strong on that one and I love the trees! :)

Both of your illos are beautiful, but I think I like the penguins on the sleds.

Congratulations on your success and have a great evening.

Lovely penguins!

These is sooo cute Nina!! :o)

This is what I would do. I would choose this image as the front of your card and on the back I would add the ice cream image but in a form of vignette, make it fade a bit, so it feels more like a spot. That will look great on the side of all the information on the back.

They are both really cute, but I think the composition on this one is stronger. I also like Alicia's idea of using the other as a vignette. Good luck! :)

Both are cute but I think the penguins on the sleds is stronger. And I like Alicia's idea to incorporate the other illo on the back of the card. Well done and good luck.

Hi Miss Nina! :) So nice to see you this weekend.
Ok, I like this scene better, but I LOVE the trees in last weeks post. I'm sure that doesn't help at all, but there you go!

Sweet! I like them both in terms of cuteness, but this seems more dynamic because of that activity on slopes :)

curlyillustrator said...

This one is stronger because of the depth of perspective. Both are super adorable, though. You're working a lot. Keep it up!

wow hard choice, sledding or ice cream, they're both so much fun! I think the sledding wins out.

Love, love, love the ice cream shop but the sledding is fun too! Can't pick a favorite. Also wanted to let you know that I brought your book in to my local book store. Hope she buys some!!! Great to see you in Seattle and thanks again for signing my book.
