B&W Becca

I finished the black and white "Becca" illustration for the back of my latest postcard, and here she is. The color version for the front of the postcard can be seen in the last blog post.

New kid's illustration preview

As promised, here's the finished version of "Becca," the sketch for which I included in my previous post.

The biggest change from the sketch was curving the top of the castle wall. I think it gave it a little more of a disorienting kind of edge.

Another small change was with the dragon's tail. His name is Draco, first of all. And he isn't as tough as he tries to make himself out to be. (I've sketched out the image that will be going on the back of the postcard which will explain what I mean. You'll have to check back in a few days to see that one when it's finished.) As for the tail; I changed it. No biggie.

O.K. Fine. I'm back.

After a brief four-month-or-so hiatus, I found the encouragement I needed to keep plugging (thanks to Cliff Knecht and Cricket A.D. Karen Kohn). So I'm back, and I've got some work to do.

First up, I have a postcard to get painted and mailed, and I've uploaded the sketch for it to the right over there. The girl's name is Becca. When I get the color version finished, I'll post it here.
