Picture Book - Adding Some Color (pages 5-6)

Time for some more Kitten in the Orchestra Pit illustrations! We're going back to page-by-page format, and as we progress the pictures get less finished...

I think these frames came out alright, if a bit heavy on the black. I love the gold color the harp ended up with, and I'm happy the clarinets are somewhat distinguishable from their chairs. Next time: Reworked timpani and a kitten close-up.

Mixed Media - Charmander Christmas

Title: Charmander Christmas
Size: 5 by 5 inches
Here's a quick piece I did as a Christmas gift for a friend, starring a fire pokemon in a santa hat and crooked calligraphy. It was fun to take a quick break from drawing so many kittens, and I like how the charmander came out. Especially the contrast of the blue eyes and orange skin. :)

Picture Book - Color at Last! (pages 1-4)

Well, I've finally started coloring frames. It's watercolor outlined in pen with a bit of supplementary colored pencil.

I decided during pages 3 and 4 to add purple to the floor, and I think I'll continue that for the next pages. The instruments have been turning out pretty well, and I'm excited to finish some of the percussion and woodwinds. :)
