Starting on my first book, "The Mighty Mr. Bearis"
I haven't been around since February or so I think. Just keeping my head down and studying and practicing my art. I just wanted to share a little bit of what I've been working on. I've fully embraced what Jake says about working on real projects and I've started work on my first book, "The Mighty Mr. Bearis." It'll be an illustrated chapter book about a pie-making bear with an adventurous imagination who stumbles into a real adventure and real dangers along the way.
At any rate, I'm still working on the art and pushing to make it as good as I can, so thoughts are most welcome.
This first piece is just a little vignette that I did to start to feel out my character (Mr. Bearis):
This next one is a more fully done illustration. I'm honing in on the style as I work on the story.:
And just for the heck of it, this is a rough for the next finished illustration that I'm working on now:

Looking really great so far. I love the color rendering.
I love your style, looks really good! :)
Thanks everyone! Here's another one I finished up this morning. Still trying on different ways of doing the art...
@Renduin love the light on this one!
