I-Fri: Quiet (unfinished)

i had this idea in my head of 'as quiet as a mouse in a library' - now that's pretty quiet. (until he decides to move!) ... i went a bit crazy on the sketch, playing with perspective. I'm happy with the result.

But I'm admitting defeat on this one and realising that I'm not going to get this finished by Friday due to 1) lots of work on (see previous post) and 2) a recurring pain in my elbow which has decided to flair up at this very crucial moment. naturally. i'm trying to save my arm so i can get my work done, but i do hope to finish this lil mousie at a later date. this will be the first time in months i haven't contributed a final piece to I-F which is disappointing to me, but what can i do, i must take care of myself first and foremost. i can't wait to finish it, but i need to wait for a good day!

xx l-k.

Challenging job with the perspective. Nicely done! Now, you shoulda just said this was a b&w piece and we'd have believed you! :) Hope your elbow gets to feeling better.

Great perspective. I did the quiet as a mouse thing too... though I'll admit, your mouse is much cuter. I just want to squeeze his little cheeks.

i hope you finish it! i like it. but who stacked those books? was it a ghost? cuz humans cant do that (bad ghostbusters reference)

This is such a great idea. The composition is really effective and i love all the details, like the books on the shelves (and the ones tilting over).

take care of your elbow.
