IF - Fat (Big Fat Post)









Yo-Ho! Chubby characters, and fat ponies are fun! So it was only natch that this weeks topic (fat) would send me into a chunky monkey frenzy. The first illo depicts the action going down in 'ol Sherwood Forest, followed by details of all the lovable little chubblets (Evil Sheriff, Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck, and Will Scarlet.) Maybe it's a bit over-board, but there is no better way to celebrate the snazzy new Illustration Friday web site than with an all chunky cast of Robin Hood.

What a funny concept, fattening up all the characters of a story. These belong in a book for sure. You obviously had fun with this, always great to see!!

They must be Cherubian Angels with little wings attached to their back - or I find no reason how they hold up on the branches. I can even imagine a little angelic chorus humming coming from them.

Great fun to look at! Especially the precise hair cut of the pony.

Ach! Fat merchants with fat loot! I'm kicking myself. I would have had so much fun with that. Nice work... I think my favorite characters are Fat Robin and Fat Horse.

Fat men in tights! That's classic. Awesome characters. I especially love the bloated horse, it looks like he's grimacing in pain from all of that weight.

You're a freak, you know that David. You always get you illustrations done and posted waaaaay before the Friday deadline...and they're kick-butt to boot. Maybe you need to go down to the nearest Kitchener watering hole and scoop me out whatever it is they've added to your H2O and send it down my way.

Great stuff Man-Dingo...I'm off to try my hand at watercolors (haven't used it in, oh, about 6 years).
