Creative Tuesdays and "Voyage"

So, here's the C.T. post for "Voyage," for the newest blog challenge!


I usually am almost a hundred percent non-digital, with the scope of my photo-editing capabilities being very basic sizing, coloring, and contrast-ing things, but for this piece I payed around with a few different effects on top of the hand-drawn part, and settled on this one for the eerie nighttime/potentially lightning-y and bad-weather feel to it.

These girls are on a "voyage," with their trusty kitties.  One who wants to feel the breeze of the ocean way up high, and the other who is content to nestle against her human.  Their trusty Duck-Boat watches their shenanigans, but transports them across the waves nonetheless.  No matter what kind of weather or how late at night, Duck-Boat dutifully does his job.

So, if you too want to go on the "Voyage" of delving into the Mister Toast challenges (which I promise are fun!), make sure you board the ship by February Twenty-Sixth!

The submission section for "Voyage" is here:

Thanks for reading, and safe travels, everyone.

this is really cool. I love the vibrancy in the darkness of the waves, the cat being held up high is great, love that.

Yes, Donna, this is totally different for you. And hey, it coudl have worked for TWISTED theme too. :) Anyway, thanks for playing along. Adventurous feel indeed. I always enjoy how you add little story elements like the cat here, for example. Marvelous.
