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...
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.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
