Now that I've submitted the last illustration for The Girls' Q&A Book on Friendship I figured now is the best time to release me WORK IN PROGRESS video series. I'll begin with "Interrupting Friend".
Most of these videos will be showing me doing the clean up work that was required between what I submitted last summer for the dummy and what I submitted this past month for the final published book. In some cases, a lot of clean up work and redrawing was necessary to bring the illustration to the consistent level of quality my publisher and I agreed we wanted to see for the final book.
In this case a lot of cleanup work needed for removing the 'sketchy' pencil lines in the clothes, skin and hair, a little bit of redrawing, and tidying up the grey values.
Before (last summer's submission) & After (final submission)
Enjoy & goodnight!
