Trying new techniques with this one! Hope you'll enjoy it Here's the dreamed house of Billy the Bearboy. Not quite built yet, but he's slowly constructing his paradise (I just helped him put an image on his most unrevealed desires).
I had a really bad time trying to understand how this forum works but I'm happy to be with you all. Here's my entry, if it's accepted .
Have a happy Halloween everyone
@Braden-Hallett Hi Braden. As always, your style and your way of designing things are just awesome. When this book will get printed, I'll definitly buy a copy :).
As for the illustration itself, I had a hard time figuring out where the boys are, in you two last illustration (a spaceship I suppose, but are they in or out?) From my point of view, it was may more readable in the illustration where we could see a part of the spaceship on the left upper corner. But that's just a netpicking point of view, soooo don't take it to seriously.
Love your work!
Hi @Coley. Congratulation for your illustration job. If you want a pro eye, why not finding a freelance you like, out there (on Malt/Coworkees/Fiverr even?), and ask him/her to give you their feedback (for a fee).
If I may, why don't you post your thumbnails here to get feedback from the community? Seems to me a great way to get a fresh eye on your work .
Have a nice day.
@chrisaakins I can totally relate on your frustration... Your style is sweet, it makes me wanna smile and share the happiness of that little chef. You're a professionnal artist and that matters a lot. Paramount chose you, not one of the winner! I really love how you render your pieces. I love the way you choose your colors too!
If I may, though, I wonder if maybe with different proportions, your art would have been in the top 16. I feel like you gave too much space and attention to the text and not enough to the main character... Also, the yeti is about the same size as your smoke and I feel like I wanna see more the yeti and his happy face. I'm pretty sure Will would have say "your yeti is standard size, we wanna see very bug or very small but not an in beetween size". I sure hear Lee too, wanting your yeti to have more rythm (he's so happy, and maybe you may have enhance this happiness with more curves). I'm not sure that I can give more advice, your piece is already beautiful and deserving to go straight to your portfolio!
I don't know if it's ok (if not, I can suppress my image, let me know), I allow myself to move around your proportions and enhancing your initial gesture... Hope it'll help you with your frustration, that's a horrible feeling...
@Asyas_illos I'm sorry about that... Your concept for yeti house was way cooler than mine !!
@LisaF Thanks for posting it! I didn't realize it was out there yet... I have my heads in the clouds sometimes.
@KathrynAdebayo Thanks a lot again for the interview! You're such a nice person .
@Asyas_illos Thanks a lot, I'm very pleased to read that! I'll try to stay inspiring as long as possible!

@Jeremy-Ross Many thanks. I'm glad you like it .
@ruth Thank you. The first cheeta's illustrations will come in a month or so at the ealiest.. I'm currently doing the book dummy.
@Jeremiahbrown Thanks a lot! I spent a lot of time on that yeti home! And congratulation for your new book!
