Hi everyone, very glad to be part of this community.
Matt Baldwin from Australia here. I'll be posting my progress in this thread as I build a body of work with intention of working as an illustrator primarily in the world of Children's Book publishing. I welcome any feedback on the work that I post here, and in turn of I will of course look through the forums to provide feedback to those also seeking. I'm hoping to complete and new piece every one to two weeks.
Here's my first piece I'm working on. This is a rough sketch with some basic value and lighting.
