I like the rocket, the colouring there is extra lovely.

It's all computer magic! And a little bit of chocolate covered suger frosted bombs.

I did the initial drawing in Illustrator, separated the layers in Photoshop, painted in Corel Painter, then back to Photoshop for the shadows and cuting/pasting/moving around layers. Add milk and stir for a sugary treat!

Eating my fav chocolate called Lohengrin (dark chocolate filled with rom-cream. 8) ) while clicking into this image made it a great experience. (I did eat some of the metal from the wraping of it also while looking,... this is a super great cool chocolate imaget. Nice feel and design.. VERY COOL! :D

I love this. The round shapes and soft colors give it such a happy, playful look. Good work!

I'm starting a new experiment today. I'm attempting an online children's book serial kinda thing based on the illustration in the original post. The plan is to add new pages on a regular basis. The story is rather open ended so we'll just see where it takes us. So I present to you the first page of Ellie On Planet X!
