I'm a banana!

Hi guys,

Instead of making idioms, I chose something slightly different: I want to make a series of illustrations with the weird phrases that sometimes show up in Duolingo (a language learning website). I always take a print whenever I read something strange, like this german exercise:

There are others for the series, like "You are eating my dog's food" or "The penguin has three feet", but for now I'm starting with the german version of "I'm a banana" (Ich bin eine Banane).

Sketches

The sketches explore different styles and reactions to... being a banana: panic, pride, self consciousness...

I like this first sketch, because it shows the sudden realization of being a banana by looking at the hands:

I want to remake the texture later, but I still need to get the blender pen. For now, this one will have to do.

That's it! Comments and suggestions are appreciated. :)

Thank you, Mikey, for this fun class.
