Double-page spread from book


Here is the first pic 'done' for the children's book...Honestly I dont really know how I feel about it yet...I think I like some of what is happening in there but its one of those strange cases where I've been working on it for so many hours that I've become a bit numb to it... The light green area in the top right of the pic is where the text will appear...It appears to have a good balance in places but there is areas that still need work...

like it, but would maybe sharpen the colours and define the out lines of the characters a little more.

anyway your the artist and this is only my view.

hope it goes well for you

I LOVE this.

It reminds me a little of Edward Lear - like some sort of rendevous of odd creatures, and I like the weird wee one in the middle... in my mind he's stirring up insurrection! I love the vibrancy of colour and the facial expressions - particularly the nose picker.

Thanks for the opinion Shane...see what you mean but in reality the pic is much brighter than is protrayed here, the photo dulled it a little...also if you click on the image the out lines are a lot more defined...let me know what you think of the next one i post...
