Post your finished Whimsical Art here for Show & Tell!

Your work can be any size, any medium, as long as it is "whimsical" and as long as it is finished.  There will be a separate thread for works-in-progress, if you want feedback on a piece before it is finished.

Please check out the Show & Tell Guidelines before posting here.

Please note that you can also start your own discussion to share your whimsical art, which will make it easier for people to give you direct feedback if that is what you are seeking. To start your own discussion click the +Add button in the upper right corner.

Be sure to do all of the things below if you are posting your work:

  • Show us your artwork - 1 artwork per post. (Click here to learn how to add an image to your forum post.)
  • Tell us about it (medium, size, techniques, and what inspired the piece).
  • Tell us whether you welcome critique. You can type something like "Comments and feedback welcome" to indicate that you are interested in receiving constructive criticism that may help broaden your art skills. If you have specific questions about certain aspects of your piece, please ask in your initial post, because it will help other members hone in on the areas where you want feedback.

You may also comment on other people's artwork, but remember to keep it friendly and constructive.  If you like a piece, please explain why.

Can't wait to see your whimsical art!  :)

This piece is titled "Cat-in-a-box".

 

The size is approximately 2 by 6 inches.

 

It began as a pencil sketch in my sketch-book then traced with fine line markers and filled in with markers and waxed-based colored pencils.

 

There is not one particular thing that inspired me create this...it was just something fun to do.

 

I think I will make an "album" of cat's in boxes...it was that much fun!

Cute drawing, Carla!  I like the elongated shape, it's a very different format and it works well!  I also like how there is a black border but that parts of the drawing extend beyond the border. 

An album of 'cats in boxes' sounds fun!  Can't wait to see them.  :)

Thanks, Thaneeya!
I love this! I agree, the elongated shape is awesome and gives it a kind of skewed, fun-house type of feel, which really adds to the cartoon-like style of the cat. And the curls! And the glasses! And the cat being upside down! It's a lot of fun. I'd love to see a whole collection of these.

Thanks, Suzana!

 

"Suess-esque". I like that compliment...I have been experimenting with different media for the "series" but I think I will stick with the colored pencil.
