Tutorial: Better Way to Remove White (Without A Filter!).
I just posted an update on my blog. I am showing the pencil rough of the Pig book cover and the now almost finished color. I still have to fix a few things and put in the heading. I have three spreads completed and five more in the line art stage. I have rough pencils on everything, so it should not be too bad to finish. http://wp.me/p2Av8t-5Z
A 32 page picture book is a lot of work as many of you already know. I’m finding as I go, my colors are changing slightly, now I must go back and adjust the earlier illustrations so they a little more saturated. I am trying very hard not to fall into the all bright and screaming, primary and secondary color trap I see so much in children’s books.
Go to my blog to read more about the book I’m illustrating and my process. Here is an early rough pencil for the cover. I will post finished pages as I go along. I’m doing this for the self published author Leila Leidtke. This is her second book, but it’s the first of her books I am illustrating.
