The Golden Goose

The assignment today in digital was to create an illustration with the topic of money, greed or riches. My children's illustration is for the fairy tale, The Golden Goose, about a farmer who acquires a goose who lays golden eggs. My dream come true. We were forced to use the brush tool and color a drawing we had scanned into the computer. Which seemed a bit painfull considering but I learned a remarkable amount from this illustration and really gained an appreciation for masking off things and working in layers. I can't believe how much faster it makes things...few!

I just don't get it, Ashley. How do you do it??

Totaly amazed.

ps) You spelled "painful" wrong.

How cool! I love the light that illiminates from the egg below. The highlights set the tone and soften everythingt! Especially the cute kids cheeks. You can really "feel" this one. Is this the final for your senior project??

Ok, first of all, "illiminates" is not a word. The closest words I could think of to it were "eliminate" (which really doesn't seem to fit in context) and "illuminate." I'm guessing you mean the latter. Secondly, as far as I know, "everything" doesn't have a "t" at the end. Third, there should be an apostrophe at the end of "kids." And last but not least, I'm pretty sure that the two (really quite amazing) "kids" are really adults. I personally don't think of young boys when I think of farmers, but that's just me. Really girls, I am rather disappointed with your grammatical correctness. And fyi, "correctness" IS a word.

Oh, and I bet Ashley meant "phew." I'm sure it can be spelled "few" though, too.
