IF - "Hollow"


Illustration Friday's topic this week is "Hollow". I went with a Sleepy Hollow approach. Since I never read the book I checked it out from the library and read it. The book is a lot different from the movies and a lot more cleaver.

Done with brush and India ink. I wanted to use color but I was just too busy this week to spend much time on it. Actually, I think b/w add to the atmosphere of the story behind the illustration.

Very interesting piece indeed. I remember watching the movie, and never got the chance to read the book, but I like the storyline. :) A very nice depiction!

Excellent drawing! I think the stark black and white contrast definitely creates atmosphere.

Great illustration. I think most books are better than their movie counterparts.

Nice illustration. You've certainly captured the mood. Black and white was the perfect choice.
