Thread: Book illustration

  1. #1

    Book illustration

    Hello
    I wrote a little story to practice some illustration and here is the first draft of the front/back cover. Thoroughly enjoyed doing it though I'm sure I'll still tweak!
    Thanks

    Wow! I didn't know you have posted the final one here already. It's very attractive on book cover IMHO because as I said in WIP. There is a very good message within it that will draw both children and parents to pick this story book. Is that mean you will post more paintings of this story? Really want to know what is the story about. Again, great work on this.

    This is a fantastic illustration. It really lets your imagination run wild. Extremely well done.

    Thank you very much everyone.
    Pai I might just keep the story under wraps for now in case it actually turns out good enough to actually send to a literary agent (ha, wishful thinking, what a nice thing that would be to do for a living!). Its nothing devastatingly good or new but you never know. The little badger cub is at the centre of the story as are his dad and the owl obviously.
    I do hope to post more images as I loved getting the feedback from you all. There will be another 16 of these double page spreads to do, so a long way to go!
    Thanks

    Wow Boxy! This really turned out beautifully! I seen the work in progress and knew the final version would be amazing.

    Perfect...I hope you have great success. This is interesting, I always wondered how these things were done. Please keep up posted. If the book goes on sale I'll buy one for sure...
