@Kevin-Longueil Thank you. Yes, I was trying to hide the knees, I really didn't work them in from the start. I'll work on making them more correct. Glad you like it!
@julian-beresford Thanks for looking!!
I never felt like a traditional artist. There was something missing from work that wasn't telling a story, that didn't inspire the imagination. When I started illustrating free, for family members something seemed to click; I was an illustrator.
I have now dedicated myself to learning art for children's books in the small town my husband and I grew up in. Southern Oregon is an amazing backdrop for inspiration! I'm lucky to have so much support around me while I work toward this career full time.
Great color. I like the concept and you organized and drew things well!
This totally tugs at my heart. The point came across instantly. Great shapes too. Beautiful work and execution. I didn't see the cat at first, but I wonder if you can highlight it's head a little more to show his shape.
Can't wait to see it in color!
@Rich-Green Thank you!
@TessW I can't make the ghost face emoji... but darn it! I was going to tone down the warmth just a bit anyway, so maybe it's just emoting more than being direct. My original thought with the grandpa was that he was just a total shadow, but I like your suggestion, it looks good. Thanks Tess! Congratulations on winning the contest, that piece is outstanding!!
I got some help from @Rich-Green who helped me get the girl in teh last panel on the same plain as the rest. Here is where I'm at with color. I'm trying to keep the line work and texture as a part of the image, to hopefully get away from the digital look that most of my work has. I'm wondering if this is working...? I don't like doing stuff really lightly colored, but is is going together well? The kids in the first panel aren't done, but you can tell where it's going a bit.
