I like the boldness of the lines. Very nice.

Lovely illustration, I really like the bold brush strokes and the use of the white paper. Lots of movement too. Great technique!

Excellent doodle Marta. Simple, yet I can feel the battle waging between Captain and the ocean.

I love the simplicity of your line work. It is a great piece of art, and a great designn too.
The textured paper ads a lovely effect too.

Thanks everyone, for dropping by my blog and leaving such friendly comments. But Lauren Kate, you need to go rest your eyes, I think - because I did not use textured paper for this piece.

Janet said...

So dynamic! I could almost be there in the water, too.

wow. The economy of line is great.
You did a great job of just showing enough. I especially like how the fish/whale has a Northwest native feel.

What size is the original (it looks tiny)?

Thank you for the comment. I like your stylized captain, great positive and negative space. Pirates make the best captains.

I missed your entry for captain completely - so many people do IF now, which is great, but...

Anyway, this has great style and enrgy - very expressive. I love it.

I like this doodle. It speaks to me. But then I hear little voices all the time. Your blog and mine are a lot alike. I would love for you to visit sometime.
