“BEWARE OF THE NOSE BITING MONSTER” : Page MAKING OF – from Doodles and Sketches to the final illustration.
Here´s some pages from a recent completed childrens book. Many of the sketches I show here belong to pages and color tests that ended up not appearing in the final book but as many of you like to see this making of stuff , this is just a little glimpse into the creative process that went behind the illustration of this book.
This was my favorite children story to illustrate back in 2017 and one of the best I´ve read in a while but at the same time it was one of the most difficult ones to illustrate as it was as story that was purely based in two characters interacting very close and the whole concept is more based on an emotion that on something that happens to them.
Nevertheless this was great to do and so here are some images out of it; making of stuff.
To get the complete finished pics you should get the book soon to be published; written by Jay Milentsky and illustrated by Luis Peres. 😉
Meanwhile take a look at these doodles, sketches and paintings.
All this was done using Mischief for sketches, ArtRage for some line work, and Photoshop for the final art and texture work.
