Illustration Friday-Leap


I just completed this yesterday (honestly, I'm still tweaking it) and it's perfect for Leap! My version of Humpty is as one of those building acrobats--what are they called? He's a daredevil. A very unfortunate hobby for an egg.



Here's a close up.

  5. Great work! The energetic background is exciting, Humpty himself is nicely rendered, and I love your creative answer to that question we should all have been asking all these years: "How did Humpty Dumpty end up taking that great fall, anyway?"
