I decided to participate in the ‘Illustration Friday‘ Blog event. This is my submission for the current topic, ‘Remote.’
This is an Illustrator image, derived from my sketchbook. Usually I color the Illustrator line work in Photoshop, but I decided to color this image in Illustrator because I’m trying to improve my Illustrator skills.

Very sad but beautiful. Well done.
Oh,its so original! I love the palette

Remote one looks bright, love the clouds’ shapes and that character!
The mountain peak is also powerful and brilliant.

Smook, thanks ever so much for visiting my Blog and for your encouraging feedback.
Nice illustration for “feeling remote”. (Especially for elephants who tend to be more social creatures. Great choice for this!) I love his ear muffs. Charming character and great colors.
Thanks for positive feedback at my journal.

kg, thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. I wasn’t sure how successful I was with the birds because I repeated the same shape so I’m glad you like them ;)
I like the palette in this piece. Nice juxtaposition of bright colours and a sad expression on the elephant’s face.
Very nice illo.
Love the illustration – looks like Nowhere Man’s pet elephant. Is it an island or a mountain above the clouds ? Nice illustration.
chad, thanks for stopping by and for the comments.
ellen, thanks a lot.
duncan, thanks for the feedback. I meant for it to be a mountain top above the clouds.
