So here are the first two of four orchid postcards I’ve been working on – As seen in my post a week or two back. They’ve got a bit more detailing in them than the other cartoon set I’ve just finished, so have taken a wee bit longer to get to final stage – In fact two of them are still to come. But thought I’d post the first two anyways, And with before and after pics so you can see how they progressed.
I like how they have ended up detailed, But in a loose sketchy sort of way. I love orchids – They are so odd looking, Especially Slipper orchids that look all bulbous and alien like with an almost sexual undercurrent… Well, they are plants reproductive organs after all!
The other two postcards in their early stage can be found in this post here : https://vincenteknight.wordpress.com/2011/02/16/postcards-postcards-postcards/ or by scrolling down past the previous couple a posts on the main page. Enjoy!
