Here is my Black & Orange entry. This one was FUN to do. I have so many memories from my childhood. I can still remember how exciting it was to check out the goodies in the gum machine and hope to get a certain one and then after much strategizing, when you lifted the lid and your lucky pick came rolling into your hands... oh the glee of it all. Life was handing Jimmy the winning hand!

Wow! This is great! Such a complex but fabulous concept and beautiful drawing and coloring. I really love it. You are so talented and skilled! Where did the "black and orange" challenge come from? I like the idea.

Your answer to my question about Illustrator vs Photoshop vs Painter was really helpful. I can see why one needs to use all three programs to get the best results, even though that's a lot of technology to master. I have all 3 but am a dunce at Illustrator. I need to play with it some more.

I like the effects, the nuances, the reflections which you give to the color, that gives much richness to your illustrations; and the memories of childhood always create very beautiful illustrations, like this one!
