I can't even fathom how this was done without a paintbrush.
The high res version is spectacular.
That blue bird looks like it has something up it's sleeve (like it has outfoxed the fox)

Great design, colors...love it all!

Beautiful piece. Really stunning. What great looking characters.

I’m really keen on the razor sharp/prickly feel of the illustration. The paper stock you’re using also creates a nice textural element. Nice work Martin! You draw wicked little beasties like no one else.

willborough said...

another great one! The colors are great and i like the little side-glances of the two. The boldness of the colors works great with your usual fine-tuned character work.

David Germain said...

The little scruffs of hair on all the joints really make this piece stand out.

Absolutely amazing.

WOW, very bold. I am a big fan of this blog Martin, one reason being that the pieces are always great, but I think what I like the most is that you are always evolving the style, and the mood in each piece. This one totally punched me in the face (which is a good thing)totally unexpected. Are you aware of what direction you want to go in with each piece or do you kind of freestyle it, and see what happens? Keep it up man.

Awesome martin. Your Fox designs always rocks and the bird is brillaiant too. I feel like I'm repeating myself everytime I'm here, but I guess that's because you keep posting great artwork:) The colors, style and everything looks excellent.

Take care,

Hans

P.S. Any progress on the job search?

Not only is the drawing fantastic and filled with life but the technique is sickeningly good too! Love the painted bg with vibrant foreground characters and elements. Such a nice combination.

It's little things like that which make a charming illustration that much more special!
