Illustration Friday: Celebrate

For some reason Mardi Gras seems to be the epitome of celebration (even though I've never participated in one...) I'm not quite happy with my color--it is more muted than I wanted it to be. I've included the black and white version because I think it looks good that way too.

I like the muted colors. I think a brighter hue would have conflicted with the black. Great facial expression.

FABULOUS!!!!! FABULOUS!!! Oh but this is fancy and deliciously fun! It would be so amazing as a Broadway poster. I love, love, LOVE your color palette for this. Great job Heather.

Great stuff Heather! I agree, both images present a different feel for the image. Very nice, great texture.

actually i like the color you are using, it's somewhat 'mysterious'. :) and the details is great.

So much fun! and so much to look at! I like both of them, but I prefer the black and white. Wonderful job!

Beautiful work! I actually really like the colors here.

I agree -- awesome color palette. And I like how you can't tell if it's a girl or a woman; that makes it enigmatic and innocent.
