I have decided to do a new piece of art for an email campaign in February.
The image will be loosley associated with the idea of Valentines Day.
Basically the idea of love.
I have 3 ideas in the running.
here they are...

Two male Elves flirting with a female elf and a fairey. Obviously inspired by my last project.
The left side of the rough isn't completely developed yet.

The local pizza place full of people who love pizza. It will be painted in black and white and red.

This one is about an artists love for his model/art.
Toulouse Lautrec is defending his model/art, Yvette Guilbert, against the affections of Vincent Van Gogh.
I mixed in as much of both artists as I could. They are in a studio similar to Van Gogh's "Bedroom at Arles," and the view outside of the window is of "Starry Night."
The cat and dog are from lithographs by Toulouse. The dog showed up a lot in his lithographs.

I need to pick one to take to finish by the first week of February so that I can get the email campaign out.
So if there's anyone out there actually looking at this blog, I welcome your vote for the one you like.
Just leave a comment and I'll pick the one that is most popular.

I will most likely bring them all to a finished state eventually, but not before the end of February.
So, if you have any constructive criticism about composition, or anything else please leave a comment about that too.

These are great! I like the third one...very clever. Can't wait to see the colored version

Fun stuff! The top illustration is my favorite. Without seeing it in color it's hard to say which composition would work best, but the top sketch feels 'right' heavy.

Top notch stuff all around.
