Tiko and Max - Final for class


Once more into the breach.

Trying to get that "tightening" stage down...which is where I get the most unsure of myself.  I pulled up some otter reference and fixed Tiko's head a bit, and tried to nail down some of the forms better in the background.


[EDIT] More changes, plus, trying to decide where I like the text...

Children's book Illustration thumbs

[EDIT]  Decided to take this to the next level.  Picked one, and started thinking about what some of those shapes could be.  Added 2 tones of grey for clarity.

The search for Aztec otter continues.

Shape exploration. Not looking for pretty, just a set of shapes that 'click' for me. Haven't found it yet, but it feels like I'm getting closer.

Put Vindicator's costume on, played with some of the imagery.

'Cause you know, ask any Canadian and they'll tell you how they aren't "rabidly patriotic" like those Americans....


Give The Jotuns a Hammering!

Still working on this one, but here's the general idea...

Limerick

Had to illustrate a limerick for Children's Book Illustration.  It's not due until next Monday, but I knocked it out of the way so I could focus on other stuff.  Linework with a pen, then scanned and coloured in photoshop.


All thumbs

The Guard




- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
First Children's Book Illustration assignment:

"There was an Old Person of Dover,
Who rushed through a field of blue Clover;
But some very large bees,
Stung his nose and his knees,
So he very soon went back to Dover."

Sketch and Inks, digital coloring to come.
