Illustration Friday-Punchline

Illustration Friday Topic -Punchline
...then, with an unfazed look, she uttered the punchline…

Here are the elements used to create this piece:
I have to give credit to a great texture image site ** GrungeTextures ** with free downloads.
Thanks for the blue cracked and peeling paint layer!

Only six basic images -- a simple composition, but I never know when to stop! I just go crazy, adding one more application or filter, then I ask myself, "What about this texture or what happens if I do this, or hmmm, maybe I should crop it", that sort of thing can go on and on and I just need to say... fini, no mas, done!


This rendition was cropped and stacked -- okay, the project is done...kaput, fini.

How's that for a punchline? I know, nothing funny about it...

Thanks for visiting my blog...have a great week! Happy Father's Day to all you dads, papa's & grandpa's.

Way to go Rebecca! Good work here (as always)! I have to confess every time I see this piece now I think of Scarlett Johansson (from the movie version):-).

Beautiful and strange image! I love the way you show your elements as well. I loved your "forgotten" image too!

So this is what's happening to the disappearing bee population? Vermeer is scaring them all to death! Joke (sort of) aside, this piece is stunning. :)

Very neat effect. I love how you reinterpret the source material.

Hey Rebecca,

I really like seeing how your images come together. Beautiful image and very mysterious. I'm just catching up on what I missed the passed few weeks. I really like your "forgotten" as well!
