Children's book

This is a children's book I worked on about a friendly monster that lived with a family. There is the front and back cover in this post, along with some screen shots. Most of the illustrations are just the concept and designs that went into the whole process.

Children's nursery rhyme illustration


 This was a freelance job where I had to illustrate a nursery rhyme. My client had two images, one of a misty meadow and one of a girl on a boat.

Here's the charcoal thumb nails. I did two designs, ones with two illustrations next to each other and a illustration that combines the two ideas.









Here's the different color studies. I tried to use soothing night time colors.




My client wanted to have the final colors be a mix of the middle and last color study. I was please with the final line drawing.


Here's the 1/2 way point.


And the final product, with a couple close ups.




I had a lot of freedom on this project and was able to work completely traditionally. It also was the first project I timed myself on. Sadly, I am a slower illustrator than I thought.

The Billy Goats Gruff concept drawings

I found this file in my drafts, I must have forgotten to publish it.





Had a group game project where we came up with concept designs for a fantasy game for children. We chose to base the game around the children's tale of "The Billy Goats Gruff." The story had the goats start off in their home and then they have to go rescue their mother, who was kidnaped by trolls. Their adventure brings them to the troll cave city, which is filled with dragons.

Self Portrait Time! I've been feeling a little out of practice, so I went back to the basics.

I'm trying to figure out what bg I want, though I'm not satisfied yet with these designs.
