Creating Art For A Book Project
Here are a few stages in my process of illustrating "The Tail of the Raccoon". The art is created digitally using Adobe Photoshop. My goal is to keep my traditional illustration look, using current tools. Digital painting takes almost as much time as traditional painting because I work in transparent layers to get a watercolor look to the work. As you can see the amount of detail in setting, clothing and characters is a factor too. The client chose me for this project because of the accuracy in my natural science and biographic books, which requires research before and during the painting process.
