This is just the first test I did on an illustration for a commissioned set of pics to illustrate a poetry childrens book some years ago.
I wanted to try and see what color mood could work best for a background setting.
Actually this simple version ended up looking like a greeting card somehow…hmmmm………
Here´s the final version along with some images from the creation process.
This illustration was still made at the time when I mostly illustrated in traditional mediums and I only used digital for small things like the backgraound here.
Nowadays I work mostly in digital simply because of the freedom it allows when we need to make some serious changes on a pic.
But what you are seeing below are still sketches from the time I used real paper and pencil.
