Illustration Friday - Sugary

this topic immediately made me think of the incomprehensibly popular masses of dough, grease and sugar known as donuts which made me think of the Tom Waits song 9th and Hennepin in which he says " and all the donuts round here have names that sound like prostitutes " and tried to think of suitable names that could apply to both but I could only come up with a few lame examples - Honey Delight or Chocolate Surprse, maybe Sweet Jelly. I'm sure many of you can come up with better ideas. This is another primitive attempt at digital illustration using Gimp

The bright glaze makes them quite sticky looking. Nicely done!

Wow! That looks delicious. Great IF entry.

These are my favourite temptation of the week! I had a go at thinking up names for donuts/prostitutes, but my efforts only revealed my somewhat misspent youth. Sorry!

I have to say, those are some pretty cool looking donuts! Great job. And your words made me laugh. The first donut name that popped into my head was Munchkin. Hmmmm.

There aren't very many good American doughnuts in Tokyo where I live. They tend to be more bread-y. So when Krispy Kreme opened up, people were lining up for 1 hour waits!

How about "Sugar Sprinkles" or "Honey D-Light?"

I love Waits. "You can't find your waitress with a geiger counter..."
Great stuff!
