Illustration Friday 072106 : Opposites

Click here to see a larger version
Sweet and sour are opposites, aren't they? My normally astute husband didn't get it, mostly because he didn't recognize the lemon as a lemon. ("That's never a lemon!") Ah, well, everyone's a critic...

The bee has been borrowed from an animation I'm working on at the moment ("The Inflammatory Response" - I'll post a link when it's done for anyone who wants to know why bee stings hurt and infected cuts turn red!)

Makes me want a cup of tea.

Two of my favourite opposites. And it's obviously a lemon!

Natalia said...

that totally looks like a lemon. what else would it be?!

maybe the honeypot is very large, bargain size for honey enthusiasts.

I like your style. Really sharp and bright. I knew it was a lemon--it's got that lemony shape and color.

Loni said...

I've seen a lemon like that! :) Nice job, and yes, Jeannettee, I agree, a cup of Chamomile Tea would go quite nicely with it!

Are you doing an animation on inflamatory responses for fun or profit?

lucrezia said...

Technically for profit, as it's the "day job"... but it's all still new enough to be fun as well!

Thanks for the comments, all. My husband has been suitably chastened for doubting my ability to render fruit!

What did your hudbond think, that yellow fruit could be?? It is a very nice lemon, can you tell him.

Your image is very nice, and I love your douce colours.
