Invention - David Opie

This is a piece that I just finished. It's from a book idea that I'm developing, and it just happens to be about an invention that goes haywire! I'm rethinking that yellow sky--it's starting to look a little "nuclear" to me. Your thoughts?
Medium: mostly gouache, with some pastel and colored pencil

First off, I just love this illustration. Especially the robot! Personally the yellow sky doesn't bother me at all. It does give it kind of a vintage feel. So if that's what you're going after, then don't change it!

I appreciate your comments--maybe I'll keep the yellow sky after all!

I like the yellow of the sky area. For me it adds to the feeling of the heat of the day. Nice robot too :o)
