IF (Illustration Friday) 1/31/14 the topic was Exotic. This one turned out nice, but I really wasn't thrilled with the topic. All the ideas I had were a bit too lofty, and considering the time constraints...none of them were going to work. I settled on the Blue Rose, which originally was going to be a Lotus Blossom. It is entirely digital, done in Painter with some manipulations done in Photoshop.
