Many people ask me how to start illustrating for a children book, so this is an example of how I start to illustrate a book. I´m not actually one of those illustrators who do a lot of pre-planning and extensive sketches but I like to go through each text at this early stage and just translate it into a storyboard as if I was doing it for a movie as all my artwork is very cinematic anyway. At this stage is not about details but about the visual compositions and about the overall mood for each scene.

1500xThe Hidden Spaceship STORYBOARD 1 - Spreads 01-10 TEXT1500xThe Hidden Spaceship STORYBOARD 2 - Spreads 11-20 TEXT1500xThe Hidden Spaceship STORYBOARD 3 - Spreads 21-25 TEXT

Once I get this right the rest is actually easy because it´s all about rendering and fine tuning each detail until a page is finished. But that´s another topic for later. For now this is how i start.

Created for book 1 of a new series written by Jay Miletsky.
This one is called “The Masterpiece – One Big Canvas” and you can find it on AMAZON.

Join a spunky collection of paintbrushes as they set out to create a grand masterpiece.

When some of the brushes don’t cooperate, is it because they are misbehaving…or is there another reason entirely? In this story, an initiative of REED Foundation for Autism, young readers are introduced to some of the behavioral differences in their peers with autism.

This was actually a really tricky one. Each island had to be illustrated as if it was a single illustration with all the insane amount of details, then I painted the overall scenery, connected all the islands with paths, added the background for the space and sky and edited all togheter in Photoshop, although the original illustrations and 99% of the actual painting was done in Clip Studio Paint.

What you´re looking at is one of my new books which is about to be released in the United States, written by Jay Miletsky and it´s part of a more extensive children´s books series to be continued.

I´m currently completing illustrating book 2 which will come out in August of this year and soon there will be more news regarding these same characters as there are some plans out there for some extra stuff coming out of this concept.

Page turn first look out of printer.

Actually this is a book sponsored by the REED FOUNDATION for Autism (https://reedfoundationforautism.org/) base in the United States and although it´s not one of those “in your face” type stories the subjacent theme can be read as something related to that.

I had a ton of fun illustrating this and working with the author, Jay Miletsky has been a blast. We now have three books togheter and hopefuly there will be plenty more in the future.

I´ll post images of the book soon and a link for amazon once this book 1 comes out.

Here´s an example of the type of pics I don´t do very often as they require a lot of human character figures which is something I have not much interest in creating (or talent for) as I preffer to focus on environments instead.

But now and then like in the case of this exciting story by Douglas Meredith about Mars for book One of the Generation Mars series, I do need to create something like this. So I´ll go and do a mix between matte-painting and regular digital painting if I can call it that…
Anyway here´s a breakdown of how I did this one image for the book for all you guys and girls out there that enjoy seeing how an image comes togheter.

For those who enjoy taking a look at how some books are illustrated here´s an example of one from some years ago.
Usually I don´t storyboard much but sometimes when a narrative is based on details that visually need to be constructed with abstract items like splatters for stars, the visual composition needs to be cinematic and work from page to page, etc, I tend to plan the book ahead shot by shot as if it was a movie.
This is a good example of what I do.  It´s all about the narrative and what a narrative needs and so each book presents it´s own challenges and needs different construction approaches so there´s not just one single method for me.
What follows is just an example of how was done for this one.
