The Mouse of LaMancha


Illustration Friday: Fearless. Please click above for much nicer resolution.

This is my first composite attempt. There's three different elements here. The floor and walls are actually from a digital photo. The mouse and rat were hand drawn on paper, scanned in, and detailed on my Pocket PC using Pocket Artist and on my laptop with Photoshop. The mousetrap and cheese were made in 3ds Max, and I used that and Photoshop to put it all together. Enjoy!

Hey Tony! This is great! I was going to ask you how you created this.... then I read your post. Very cool! Great idea and terrific execution (no pun intended)

Love it!

BTW, the word verification word is "goove." I don't know why, but I thought you might like that.

Oh. My. Gosh. This is soooo awesome!! In so many ways: the composition, the title, the positioning... the overall idea/concept. Great job!

Mischa said...

I like your illustration. I actually thought that was some sort of action figure you'd set up in front of a mouse trap before I read your description.

Anyways, I like the idea, and it looks fantastic. :)

Thanks so much for the comment on my illustration. ^^

Love this! Brilliant, I like the 3-D aspect. I suspect a small revolt here as well, although the lance will be pointing at our cat!

Good stuff Tony, I like a bent mind :) The techniques all gel together nicely I think. Wonderful sense of movement too.
