Book covers for our new, upcoming children's books series, Animals Stories
These are the character drawings of the main character, Pauli, from our upcoming children's picture book 'Pauli The Pirate'.
It took me quite a while to come up with a character I liked.
I've done 30 character drawings in different poses, and now I'm going to trace the drawings on to cartridge sheets and color them in watercolor. I will paint the other characters - the parrot and the tiger - and the backgrounds - jungle and ocean scenes - separately, and then, once I'm done, I will combine everything on the computer and give the illustrations any additional touches if needed.
It's a very fun book to work on and I'm enjoying myself tremendously!
I hope to finish it this month.
I thought I'd draw with shapes today, and this is what came out. I'll work on it some more later and give it a realistic finish.
