First contest try here at SVS...this was fun
Cheers from Australia (where we definitely don't have snow at the moment
My name is Katrin and I am a self taught children's book illustrator from Australia (originally from Germany but I moved here around 16 years ago).
I just finished two picture book projects this year and then I usually reflect on my work and try to learn new things and improve - which is why I signed up for this SVS free trial. I can already tell I love it and the choices of courses are amazing.
To challenge myself additionally and also because I just LOVE folktales I again took part in Folktaleweek on Instagram and created seven illustrations according to their prompts.
I was wondering if you guys would like to give me some feedback on one of the pieces and maybe help me choosing courses here at SVS to improve that way. I think one of the areas I can definitely need help with is "depth".
So here is my illustration for the prompt "harvest" - I chose a Brother Grimm folktale about a witty farmer tricking the devil. I've aimed for a handmade look and limited palette.
If you had some comments or suggestions I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!
