Illustration Friday - Balloon

My first Illustration Friday in a long time -

I've had this piece for awhile, and am showing the full size one - and a cropped one - (and please don't ask why this type is underlined - if I knew the answer to that I'd be a millionaire)



Which one do you like better? (ignore the background color - if I understood scanners - I'd be a millionaire...again!)

hey, great to see you!! I personally like the cropped one. More mystery :)

Teri said...

Yes, my thoughts too...the cropped one leaves you wondering where the balloon is floating away to

Cropped, for me.

I like the cropped one. The balloon is beautiful! The uneven color reminds me of the plastic baloons that we made as chidren. A little tube of colored goo and a little straw and voila- balloons!

Oh, how I hate decisions, so...they're both beautiful in different ways. I love the texture of the balloons and the definition of the hands. I like them both!

Cropped or uncropped. They both have strength, but the cropped one is just a bit more interesting to me. Good job.

I like the cropped one too.

I like them both but the top one is my favorite as I like seeing the space above the balloon. One of my favorite movies: The Red Balloon.

I like the cropped - warm (rosy) background one.
It glows with feeling, beautiful :)
