New Illos

Hey everyone. I've been really, really, busy this month so I haven't been updating as much. I do, however, have a few new illustrations to share:)

This first one is actually the 'third version' of this illustration. It took a couple of times to get it right. The first one had an orange sky but it didn't quite go with the starfish. The second version was just boring, but I really like this third one. The title is The Day The Ocean Disappeared



The title of the next one is For the Blue Birds. It was painted on the new Lanaquarelle watercolor paper I got for Christmas. The paper is wonderful, but it's not right for all projects. For instance, because it dries so quickly it difficult to do washes.




The title of the last one is The Shy Girls. It has a lot of detail and it's outlined with black ink. Most of the time I outline with a charcoal pencil because it's softer and easier to control. But this just had too many small details to do that so I used a Micron pen.



Well that's it for now! I hope everyone is having a good year thus far:)
