IF: "Poise"

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Poise". This picture is sort of opposite of the topic. Perhaps the man enduring the "Blah..." is the one with poise. I ... uh ... I mean, he is just wanting to enjoy his meal with his family, and yet the "Blah..." gets in the way and goes on and on.

I decided to experiment with two versions of this piece. The first is done with brush and ink and a little bit with the ink bottle dropper. The second was scanned and digitally manipulated with the Paint program that comes with Windows, a sort of a cheap way around using Photoshop or Illustrator.

You obviously have encountered women of the opposite sex (reference from 'Allo 'Allo). lol

You could consider using Paint.net. It's free too, but has much more options than Windows Paint, and a huge group of users and programmers. It's the superior of Windows Paint, by far.

renevanbelzen - Funny! I think I will look in to Paint.net since it is free. Thanks for the info.
