Working on a new #painting ! I finally had the guts to add paint to this sketch that I’ve had lying around for over a year. #gouache #art #sketch #illustration #illustrator #brushes #workinprogress #wip (på/i Bristol)
An illustration I did for the Dragon themed issue of the quarterly children’s fantasy e-zine Spellbound!
I have actually had this done for a little while, but I wanted to wait with posting it until the issue was out. Which it is now! If you’ve got kids, I’d recommend to check it out, here!
My part of a trade with Amy! My elf bard Deidra is meeting her klepto kender character Ember for the first time. This is a follow up to what happens right after the picture Amy drew of Ember going through the contents of Deidra’s satchel, hehe. Magic mouth harp in action!
ACEO commissions! Ladies first~ :D
Look! Casey drew my Meja (on the right)! She looks so friggin gorgeous in her style! <3<3<3 I am so excited to get to put the original card on my wall. YAY!
A double page spread and patterned endpapers from my picture book project! I handed these in today, for the module, together with all my developmental work (3 sketchbooks) and a dummy with the whole story sketched out. I wish I worked faster so I could have had more finished spreads to show than these.
I will keep working on this book though. I quite enjoy it and I think I am starting to reach a point where it could become pretty good! I am not entirely sure on this style for it any more though… I’ll do further tests.
Chelsea’s character Ina trying to learn to play tin whistle! Not going that well at the moment.
Style/colour test. This project is driving me nuts… #art #picturebook #childrensbook #illustration
Design sheet for the main character of the story! It is important to wear a helmet when you ride to school (whether you ride a bike or broom). I think I have settled on these for the final colours. :)
Concept designs for the other kids in the main character’s class. As this picture book takes place at the school. I wanted a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and personalities while still looking like the same style and without being too stereotypical. I want the reader to feel like this could be a school almost anywhere in the world.
This is how I thumbnail. D: I don’t think I will go with any of these for the final spreads, they were just tests and discarded ideas.
