"small" -- illustration friday topic -- 11/25/05


"small" -- illustration friday topic -- 11/25/05 -- #348 on www.illustrationfriday.com (#149 on the archive's list)

this week's topic of "small" on illustration friday instantly brought to mind the size and strength of a developing fetus. i probably thought of this because this is just about the size of my next grandchild, who is due to arrive in may, 2006. as far as size goes, this fetus also displays an amazing amount of strength as it grows/develops/prepares for birth.

this picture was done w/ prang colored pencils on white sketch pad paper and based on a photo taken of a 13-week old fetus using infrared photography (which makes the fetus look dark w/ glowing edges floating in an irridecent gel capsule.
