An Apple a Day... by IceandSnow An Apple a Day... by IceandSnow

...Keeps the Doctor Away... or does it? -DUN DUN DUNNNN-

Concentration piece #3! (my concentration is superstitions)

Let me just say that as I was working on this, the creepy doctor kept scaring the crap outta me.
Know that this piece is coming from someone that is very much afraid of all things medical. Put a syringe anywhere near me, and I WILL start shaking uncontrollably. xD
And this doctor guy here just gives me the creeps in general... Even if he wasn't wearing the doctor clothes, which are scary enough as it is... I mean, his skin is GREY. D8

but uh. anyway.

If you're wondering what exactly is going on here, this poor girl has an apple and THINKS that it will protect her from the doctor. But the doctor inches closer with his syringe and "TONGUE DEPRESSOR" (which is really just a fancy name for a popsicle stick)
Her expression is one of "...uhh, wait, this apple is supposed to keep you away from me."
Like garlic and vampires.

(you're supposed to EAT it, silly!)

I also REALLYYYYYY love this color combo. It's gonna happen more, I'm thinking.

media: Acrylic paint and a little... was it conte crayon? hmm.
On cardboard.
Actual size is about 8 in. x 8 in. (download for fullsize, but for some reason the scan quality wasn't great.)

Oh, I love this! The colour is spot on and makes it so bold, but the style is really what caught me. I love how sharp it all is. Actually, it reminds me alot of the illustrations by Brett Helquist in a Series of Unfortunate Events, the story about the hospital.
I still can't get over the colour, though. The orange in the grey skin of the Doctor is so perfect, and I just am in love with the background and the whole feel to it.
