Illustration Friday: "Artificial 2"

I decided to do an experimental piece for this week's IF topic in addition to the one I already submitted.
Starting out, I had the idea of the figure looking sort of like a scientist pouring Sweet and Low into his tea, but it ended up looking like a gang member instead. I guess that's what I get for making it up as I go!

Drawn with Prismacolor felt pens and a Sharpie.

Hah, that's awesome! Although, your original intention seems to still linger. When I was reading the text beneath, just seeing the picture in the corner of my eye, I thought it was a scientist (like ie. a biochemist).
It looks stunning, I thought it was some kind of digital art before reading that it's actually felt pens and sharpie! Great stuff!

I love it! It's trying to send a strong message, and I think the overall result is very artistic! =) The powerful contrasts definitely has a great effect here.

Your review is pretty funny! Still, the drawing is appealing.

Turned out great anyway!

I think it is very interesting - and you should not stop making it up as you go along because the results are unique. To me it looks like a surgeon undergoing an operation - putting the sweet-and-low in coffee! Hah! It is very important that the surgeon stay awake!
