Dummy book finished and in the post along with one spread so time to work on other things and wait for a reaction from the publisher.

In the Dragons Cave

It has taken a long time but at last I have completed the first spread for Starlight. The long picture above and the colour one from the previous post make up the top and bottom of the first spread. Time to do all the full size roughs for the rest of the book now.

Back to the drawing board

After a long period of absence from this book, partly as a result of working on other things and partly as a result of artists block on this particular project, I have gone back to the drawing board, reading the text, sketching and trying to relax into it.

Sketching is always a bit like thinking aloud and the first stages are very rough, s story board version.

Maybe this time it will work and I will not get distracted by hares and birds, but I have another story walking around in my head too, and have promised myself that I can only settle to work on that when this is more settled in itself. However life sometimes does not work out as we want it to, so will have to wait and see.
