New Character continued...

Here are some further sketches I am starting to find a good style and colour palette for this book. I am using Dr PH.Martins 26B Golden Brown which gives a lovely warm colour to my character.

MacMillan Children's Book Competition


I have just returned from London after attending the MacMillan Children's Book competition exhibition where I received a certificate as 'highly commended.' It was a wonderful night meeting some really talented children's book illustrators and the team from MacMillan were incredibly nice and friendly. A very happy and proud day for me :))))

Photo-shop

I try to avoid photo-shop as much as I can as I prefer images when they haven't been messed about with. However sometimes it is very useful to experiment and change images to suit. I have tried hard to adapt the background to this image to have an almost circular shape all light rather than one side darker and added a filter.
