Oookay, so I need some feedback, if you have a sec, on my portfolio sketches before I start the final pieces! There’s only 8 pictured here but the 9th and 10th will be the color version of the the pig holding the newspaper 🙂 It’s a stand alone piece at the beginning and end, and 4 double page spreads. I really appreciate this guys, thanks so much! And please be honest and thoughtful-no “Cute!” or “Good job!”-I need real critiques! 🙂 I guess I should add that I’m striving to be a picture book illustrator so keep that in mind when giving suggestions 🙂 Oh and they will all be in color except for one spread of the pig w/ newspaper-that will be a value spread and a color spread. Thanks again! P.s-the newspaper will be filled in with newspapery things for the final piece 🙂
here’s a great video from Will Terry! Check out his other videos too! 🙂
so I absolutely love the site seven impossible things before breakfast (and not just because it’s title refers to Alice in Wonderland!) but also its just an incredible font of experience and information 🙂 I thought this interview was particularly interesting! Hope you enjoy it and definitely take the time to check out all the other great interviews on the site! 🙂
here’s my post for #colour_collective this week 🙂 @PennyNevilleLee was kind enough to choose a pastel color which was so fun! It got me inspired to create a different character and I figured out that you don’t always have to mix in white to get a pastel! With this one I did use white, but not with the new character 🙂 Instead I used a very light wash of color and let it “mix” with the white of the watercolor paper so it appears pastel-blew my mind!
