Illustration Friday - Balloon

"When night fell, they used the balloon to make their observations."

Finally found some motivation to do another Illustration Friday challenge. I've been feeling kind of tired and uninspired when it comes to illustration these days. Maybe the cold weather and snow are having some effect. However, I'm really happy with this piece! I will still do some work to it, since I was distracted by some jobs, and couldn't finish it in time.

This is a pencil sketch with some texture and color in Photoshop. It is © Chris Chuckry.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wonderfully atmospheric and just a little creepy.
For me, one of the most original hot air images this week. Top work.

That's fabulous, it's got so much atmosphere and I love the way you've got the shocked expression on the bottom part of the balloon.
