IF - Angels and Devils

IF - Angels and Devils

This illustration is a collaboration done by some of the people at the Camel Exchange - go there to join in! Anyone can play whether they are a member of the blog or not.

This particular doodle was started by Zinkibaru here, added to by Johnnynorms here and now I've added to it.

For more illustrations see IF



This theme came with a great synchronicity. Jim had just finished reading a copy of Going Postal by Terry Pratchett and on Friday evening I opened it up to discover that the first chapter was called "Angel". Unfortunately I then got more involved in reading the book than doing an illustration... whoops!
Today I started trawling through the Camel Exchange archives to see if there was something to play with - all the images already there are free to be played with provided you let us know so we can put your contribution up too - and came across something that fit the theme already. Rather than just repost it as it was, in true Camel Exchange style I added a bit more to it. If you prefer one of the other stages you can take that and play with it instead.

Happy doodling!

I like every element in this, it seems fresh and it all holds together well.

Caroline said...

Thanks Modroom - especially as this is the result of several people tinkering... are you going to play too?

Queen Tut said...

Nice illo, I esp like the grass and the red flowers. I find it uplifting. I will have a look at the camel exchange.

Caroline said...

Queen Tut - thank you and do join in - oh and the grass and flowers came out of a Painter IX image hose - easy way to add them!

johnnynorms said...

Great stuff Caroline. I think I'd rather take my chances with the flaming poppies than those stuffy angels!

Alina Chau said...

Love the style!! Coool illo!

Paula said...

Had never thought od angles without curving lines, but these are really very original. Love the shadow one casts.

Caroline said...

Johnnynorms - thanks - maybe its a case of the devil you know?

Alina Chau - thanks Alina - its a bit of a mix of styles I know...

Paula - the angels without curves were Zinkibaru's and the shadow from Johnnynorms!

aynaku said...

andrea said...

Oh this is very cool! I love everything you (and the others) did to this piece...the colors, the shapes, the texture. So many pieces to it.
Wow!
a.

Caroline said...

Thanks Andrea - I like what the others did too!

ValGalArt said...

Funny when I saw this I thought it was very different for you! Now I know why! I love the sphere shape that the angel hovers over and the sun with the petals (great colours) and the pastel angels with their crooked wings. Love it!

Caroline said...

Valgalart - Tee hee - how to get a new style - use other people's!

Holly said...

I like all the different styles here. Love the sun. Cheers!

carla said...

It's really cool how so many different styles can come together to create a piece that holds its own! I really like each piece of it...can't pick a favoriote part:>

Roz Foster said...

Ha! Looks like putting that together was a lot of fun for everyone. Neat stuff!

Caroline said...

Thanks Holly - suns are fun!

Carla - Glad you like it - we do it for fun not critical acclaim ;-)

Roz Foster - it was.

Please do feel free to join in if you want a change from serious drawings!

Here is the story I see... Those 4 good angels are coming to the rescue of what they think is a bad angel... But in reality, the brown one is a good angel too! He's just enjoying life, surrounded by nice poppies and getting a good tan (maybe a little sunburn)... :)

andrea said...

I can't believe I missed this! (Where's my brain these days...?) This is one of the best IF illos I've seen this week. Hooray for collaboration.

Ellen said...

Neat! Thanks for the information! I'll go check it out...always a treat to stop by your blog!!

Caroline said...

Merlinprincesse - ah sunburn - you noticed that might have been the problem!

Andrea - glad you like it.

Ellen - I hope you enjoy the Camel Exchange!
