Really upping my illustration game! Scanned drawing using the Procreate paint app. I wanted to use tertiary colors and texture in the illustration. Odd lighting and worked hard to make sure the shape of each character is clearly defined. It took me a few days to finish and another few days to make corrections. Thanx to the peer group! I can put this down as strong portfolio piece.
I would love to add in more comp sketches to my dummy book, but working on illustrations, a web comic, a very important portfolio review coming up is slowing things down. I have to divide my time effectively to make Annabelle’s Ghost possible. The best that I can present to you is this short video on my progress.
Enjoy and have a good week!
Sorry people for not posting much and i’ve been busy with work and attending the American Librarian Association 2015 in San Francisco at the Mascone Center. Anything print related is there, the latest books, equipment, tools, furniture, and above all children’s books. I got a whole bunch because of the discounted prices.
Got to network with publishers, illustrators, and editors. Ask them about my work, what they like and what they wanna see more of. Ask them about submission guidelines and they love getting post cards of illustrations. Easy for them to pick the illustrator they want, good idea!
Below are some of the books I highly recommend based on great illustrations, design, and story. These will be availiable for purchase, fall of this year. I couldn’t get them because the books were display copies. 😔
