More Alphabet Soup Please With Luscious Leaves

30 Nov

A previous post that was done back in October, talks of the Alphabet Soup task we had to do. One of the tasks I done was to illustrate three lines from a poem by Seamus Heaney:

The letters of the alphabet were trees,

The capitals were orchards in full bloom.

The lines of script like briars coiled in ditches.

I mentioned of digitizing the drawings, and I have finally got around to do them.  I’m most proud of the first one personally :3

    Well, the first thought that comes to mind is: TREE-mendously creative!! : )

    I like how you worked in other letters as the limbs in #1, and the pink “leaves” in #2 look like cherry and apple blossoms in springtime (and I like the fallen leaves in #2 as well–yup, always a few casualties in the spring).

    My only suggestion would be to perhaps add a larger detail image for #3– kinda hard to see the letter vines in that one.

    Nice work! I hope your instructor will be inspired by tree trunk #1 when he gives you your grade!! : )

      Haha! I should have expected something like that coming from the man who puts such classic puns into his comments ^___^
      That really made me smile.

      I thought that as well when I viewed it last night, but wasn’t too sure. I just had difficulty showing the shapes of the vines — but I’ll work something out =]

      Glad you like them. The letters were picked out specially for the tree itself in #1. I can’t remember what fonts I used though… Just remember picking them and altering the way it is shaped a bit.

      Thanks again Mark for another tree-mendous comment!
