I drew this yesterday.
I posted this the other day, but I made a correction. The girl in the middle’s head was too big. I shrunk it a little and pruned back her hair some. I think it looks better now.
I really like drawing bare feet. XD
Buy a print.
I’m not entirely sure I’m done with this. The girl in the middle’s head might be too big, but I’m not sure… What do you think?
The latest spread from my current picture book commission. I hope I made the white turkey look suitably soft and fluffy. 🙂
I only have one more image to go. This has been such a fun project to work on!
Here’s an illustration of mine running in February’s issue of 435 Magazine.
Some quick motion sketches.
Here’s a spot illustration I did for the August issue of 435 Magazine. It was for an article about the new Verrückt water slide at the Schlitterbahn water park. The slide’s billed as the world’s tallest waterslide and the name means insane. They had to do a lot of testing and redesigning before they FINALLY got it so it worked right and could open it.
Unfortunately my illustration didn’t end up running. The bit in the article that mentioned this slide was cut. So, they didn’t need the illustration.
Just as well, because there are some problems with this illustration. It was drawn when they were still testing the slide and it wasn’t opened yet. When it opened, the rafts were different than all the reference materials I could find showed them. Originally, the rafts were supposed to hold four people, have lower seat backs, and lap belts only. The rafts they had when it opened had shoulder belts, higher backs, and only held three people. So… *sigh* it didn’t turn out as accurate as I wanted it.
Since it’s digital, it’ll be pretty easy to change, though. Just take out the derpy guy at the back and change a few details… I retained the copyright, so I might just correct it and put it up on iStock.
Drawing the splash was particularly fun.
This is an illustration of several happy skyscrapers from the Kansas City skyline. It’s an illustration for the August issue of 435 Magazine. The buildings are cartoon versions of real buildings downtown. If you’re on the Liberty Memorial hill looking towards Union Station, you can see this view over Union Station’s roof. I needed tall, skinny towers grouped tightly together, which is why I chose this group of buildings.
So, I asked for critiques on this and thank you so much for the suggestions. I made some changes and here’s the revised illustration.
