Otto's Boat



Rather than conquer his fear of swimming, Otto opted to take up sailing.

This is for Illustration Friday's theme of "sail." I don't know the first thing about sailboats, so don't look too closely at the mechanics of Otto's boat!

Looks like Otto could use some wind in his sails. He looks fiercely dedicated. Very nice.

Thanks Auki for the comment about my work. I really like the way you draw and the lines you use, do you draw with anything in particular to achieve this line affect? Lovely characters too, I really love the rabbit from your 'canned' entry, really funny.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment!

Axl - Yes indeed, he could use some wind!

Mary -The lines are achieved with a graphic tablet and some pressure sensitive brushes in Illustrator. I learned to draw digitally, and unfortunately so far I feel kind of limited to the digital world. :)
