I present 3 illustrations today for weeks 8, 9 and 10. It’s been a busy time as I have been filling my days with:
- teaching myself Adobe Illustrator by watching many youtube tutorial videos
- submitting manuscripts to Koala Books /Scholastic before their deadline closed on 28th February (a rare opportunity, too good to miss, so fingers crossed)
- preparing a chapter book manuscript for my critique group
So here we are, I present 3 more completely different styles yet again:
Week 8 – Cross-hatching
I really enjoyed this process, it can go wrong quickly so it is best not to rush. This started as a sketch while I was writing/reading blogs/catching upon facebook/etc. One of my recent picture book manuscripts has a Rockhopper Penguin in it!
Week 9 – Tree
I never know what I am going to do each week. It always takes me by surprise. Here I wanted to capture a scene rather than a stand alone object.
Week 10 – Pattern
This was hard work as Adobe Illustrator is new to me. I can’t access my Art Rage Software as it is on our computer that has broken down. This has turned out to be a good thing as it has made me try something new. Again, watching youtube really helped me understand using a grid, the pen tool, etc.
