Picture book project - concept art

More concept art - these are earlier pieces that were painted digitally. Again most of this is likely to change as these were concepts done before the story had been formed. The character had regular human-like hands here for instance.

Picture book project - concept

Still working out colours and technique, so here's another simple composition. The colours are probably getting close to what I want, but the technique I'm not so sure yet. I don't want it overly fussy looking, but am definitely still struggling to control the medium. More to follow.

Picture book project


Some good news to report, I have teamed up with author Jennifer Poulter who has taken my initial concept art and done a truly brilliant job of working them into a story for picture book form. Above you can see some new concept art created since receiving the finished first draft of the manuscript. At this stage I'm still trying to establish the look, so nothing here is final. If you missed the earlier concept art I posted here/here & here, it was all digitally painted. I'd like to reinterpret the world created thus far in watercolour if I can manage to get to grips with this medium. I still have a ways to go on this front.
