race


Here is the first color painting I've done for WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON. Upon looking at the manuscript, we decided it would be ideal if there were 10 color illustrations...but I need to do them by the end of the month. Yikes! Wish me luck!

I want them all to have this level of detail, though I do think I overworked this one a little. If I have time, I'm going to go back and decrease the contrast of the gate, take the yellow/orange light away from it, make it a bit more monochromatic so it isn't so fussy looking.

I love the cool tones of the interior, and the sparing use of the golden orange on the b order. Nice work! It doesn't look overworked here.

Totally gorgeous... I love to see how your work has metamorposized.. or perhaps it's just different styles from your other stuff, but it is ALL lovely. Thank you for sharing.
