So much great work this month! I really enjoyed this prompt. Thanks again all the input on my thumbnails and drafts. It helped tremendously.
Editorial illustrator working on some picture book skills.
Had so much fun this month. Special thanks to @theprairiefox for the input on my sketches!
Beautiful work everyone! Happy Halloween!
Ok, some sketches and a revision for this month if anyone is interested. I feel like maybe I'm not making things interesting enough in general. A little too careful overall and not weird enough? Still plenty of time to go in a different direction. All thoughts/serious critiques welcome, I can take it!
@Jonathan-Malski Thanks! Good job on the proofreading. Yeah, the before and/or after seems to be much stronger in this genre than trying to illustrate the action. Took me a few months to learn that lesson. Jon Klassen had a bit in an interview about how, as an animation storyboard artist, he had an instinct to imply all the action off-stage. That translated well into his picture book work as it's such a still medium. I've heard the point made several times in the critique arenas as well.
