Safeguard by WesTalbott Safeguard by WesTalbott
12 x 16
Watercolor and Prismacolors on Strathmore illustration board.

This was a project for school where I had to illustrate 2 people talking. It was slightly forced and in hindsight I would have done things a little differently, but I'm pretty happy with it considering I rarely do traditional work.

Good gracious this is gorgeous!

Don't stop doing watercolor and Prismacolors! If/when I get my novel published, I'm showing this to my publisher and saying, "Get this guy to illustrate my book."

I wish so badly that I had drawn this...or even *could*. Brilliant all round, and I love your choice of color.

There are so many wonderful subtle things i love about this like the dents/scratches in the armor and even the head of the baby which took me a few glances to notice. It tells a story all by itself :) looove it!

Wow, keep it up this is amazing. My boy friend does oil paintings but he says water colour is very hard.

I can really feel a story behind it, it's so heart warming. And I know this is pretty minor but I especailly love the little chips/dents in the armour, aha. Everything is just so detailed, it's amazing! Good job!

Thanks! Heartwarming is definitley what I was going for so that's nice to hear. The scratches in the armor were super fun to make too. :)
