Here’s chapter 11. Almost the same image as chapter 2.
Another illustration for The Genie Loophole by Paul Maguire.
So many layers….
My third kite-themed entry for the SCBWI Postcard Illustration Contest.
I had a wild neighbor pay a visit to my back fence a couple days ago. He came by around this time last year too, so maybe it’s an annual visit. This time I only got one decent shot of him.
Here’s a close-up of his head. Same image, just cropped and auto contrasted.
I think this is the final version. Unless I notice something that needs changing.
And here it is in black and white.
I designed it as a two-page spread with a bit of room at the top and bottom for cropping if needed. It’s all done in layers, so the signature can be moved or removed and the colors can be individually fiddled with as necessary. The center line falls about where the mom’s elbow is, so nothing important is obscured by the fold.
