A Boy & A Girl - and some prints for sale :)

Hi all,
The awesome Jerrod Maruyama was really kind to inviting me to submit a contribution piece for the Pixar Times blog. I had this idea for something else before but I think it fit right into the topic :) I hope you like it.

My usual curiosity.. what do you think the story is about? :)

Title: A Boy and A Girl
Medium: Pencil & Digital

the original pencil drawing:

Also, some of you might already know about this but I'll mention this again.. I finally have my first prints for sale! They're limited to 25 prints and the prints will only be online until the 1st December 2010.

A big thank you goes to Imaginism Studios and Sketchoholic for hosting and producing these prints. The profit will go towards supporting the sketchoholic community and of course.. me :)


You can find the prints here. There are 7 prints in total.

Really excited about this. Hope you like them. :)

Best,
Charles

The unicorn fell from the sky, knocking off Totoro and his clown sidekick to save Barbie. It was a special mission since Woody and Buzz were on a tea appointment at the moment, and didn't know what was happening.

Very lovely illustration, your pencil work always amazes me.

I love your pencil work! The way you shade is so soft and delightful. The contrast between the boy and girl are apparent and fun. Great illustration! :)

I really enjoy your pencil work, Charles. You consider every stroke and texture, it's really helpful in making a cohesive picture.

Thanks for your words of wisdom, as well. I really appreciate your thoughts on my topics.

Wow, awesome piece as always, your pencil strokes are really neat, so well controlled, yet unbound.
Love the potato head broken down regardless:)
Congratulations!

They all look pretty and inspiring.
Hope they sell well and even more to be added(especially "Duo" that I liked)!!

I really like you use pencil for rendering and do digital paint on top of it. Do you use Color layer when you jump into digital media?

I have been waiting for you to get prints :D - so of course I've already ordered one. Tough choice, but I landed on Godzilla, love giant monsters and your take on the guy. Got my eye on Flying, too, though.

Cheers, man :D
