No sooner did I decide to participate in Illustration Friday submissions--an interactive website that gives you a week to do an illustration on a stated theme--than I got too busy to finish on time. Nevertheless, I have kept on with it and finished. The theme was "bottled", and here is the sketch for my digital painting to be executed in Corel Painter. It's just a twist on the old djinn in the bottle story, showing that the djinn has gotten out and imprisoned the man in his place. I will post the final painting in a day or two.
I really do want to post quite regularly here and will try harder now.
