Illustration Friday: Together

The I-Friday for this week was "together" so I drew this yesterday when I was finished with my triad mash-up painting.

Also, lyrics from Fall Out Boy's new song "Alone Together" \m/

Triad Mash-up Painting

Media used: gesso, watercolor (background), acrylic paint, india ink

^This is the very first attempt (for lack of a better word). I got critiqued for the road, as it didn't really fit with my Fletcher color scheme, and the ink just kind of looked weird.

I think it looks better with the charcoal.

And here is my finished product, matted and fancy-looking.
