Treehouse – Final

Here’s the completed image.  It was designed as a full spread.  That means nothing important in the way of the center fold.  Also, not much is happening on that right side because it would have a fade over most of that half with text overlaid.


Illustration Friday: Jump

This week’s Illustration Friday prompt was jump.  I was going to just repost my lovely swimmer children.  But, then I decided to do a little more.  For those of you who saw the work in progress sketches for these two, you might remember that these were not created for the same scene.  But I decided to change that and combine them into one scene formatted for a magazine cover.  So, I added a background and mocked up graphics for a Highlights Magazine.  So, here’s the plain image and the Highlights mock-up below.  Let me know what you think.

I am not in any way affiliated with Highlights Magazine and this is not a real Highlights cover.  Only an art sample.

Let’s Make Magic: Final – I Think

I think this is the final version.  I’ll put it aside for a week and then come back to it once the “Look at the masterpiece I just created!” buzz has faded.  Then I should be able to judge it more objectively and see if anything needs to be changed.

In the meantime, there’s nothing to keep all of you from commenting.  What do you think?   Is there anything that I need to change about this?  I haven’t double-checked the colors on my other monitor.  Do they look okay or are they too bright?  Does anything look awkward?   The wrong color?  Incorrect shadows?   If you notice anything, pleas let me know.  It’s digital, so I can still change quite a lot if necessary.
