I've committed myself to an Atlas Shrugged project illustrating the main characters. Mostly I'm interested in drawing Hank Rearden, Dagny Taggart, and Francisco d'Anconia. I'm intimidated to draw Dagny's body, in a suit or an evening dress, they are equally striking to me. Ayn Rand is a genius. Of that I am convinced.

This was much more fun to draw than to paint digitally, but I guess I liked the way it turned out-- except the background. I don't know how I feel about the orange. This is supposed to be my cat Specter. She's never brought home a canary yet, but I've seen mice, rabbits, exotic birds (people's pets?), stellar jays, and finches.

I had a hard time this week with the word from Illustration Friday. I knew I didn't want to draw birthday cakes or brides or happy children. Instead I picked the heroic slaying of a terrorizing dragon, which the little townsfolk in the background are celebrating. I found the technique for this image fun, but unduly time-consuming.
