As i've now written 3 picture book texts, i'm trying to get a few illustrations together for each to send to potential publishers. This illustration is for the second manuscript I wrote called 'Come out and play' a kind of tongue-in-cheek, humorous story poking fun at modern society, in a child frienly way of course.
This illustration is a double page spread for the last part of the story. It started life as a pencil drawing:
Then it was worked up into a painting. I had to split it into two separate sections, as a) I didn't have any suitable paper big enough, and b) my scanner only takes up to A4 size paper. I think i may have to invest in a larger pad.
Lastly it was finished in PhotoShop. Ta da! Heres the final thing -
Hope you like the cheeky egg on head detail which came to me in a moment of sillyness whilst was working up the original sketch :^)
