Illustrating a Kid’s Book – Part 2

A few more attempts at narrowing down what the Girl’s general characteristics will be.  For instance, P rarely wears dresses, so she’ll mostly be wearing leggings and t-shirts in the book.

Her face will be completely and seamlessly incorporated into the image in the final stage.  These are just rough sketches for content, color, and sizing.

Not sure about this one with the bat, although I love the idea of drawing her from the back and not having to deal with getting her sweet little face in there!  That bat needs work.   A LOT of work!  But I like the idea, because bats are hilarious.  Well, to me, anyway….

This kid LOVES to dance!  I’m thinking probably flamingos or elephants in tutus.

      I’ve been thinking about doing it for awhile, so I have had time to envision it in my head for quite a length of time. I’m also MAKING myself do mock ups in my journal before I commit to the final scene, which I hope will increase my likelihood of success…
