Sally & O'Mally

Well here is my children's book characters now in technicolor as promised. I'm pretty much done the story where I like it. I'm going to get some feedback from a couple more people and then it's time to start drawing and roughing everything out. I'm thinking the covers and sleeve will be rendered like this but the interior might be done a little simpler. Not sure yet. Maybe even watercolor. I haven't committed to an idea yet which is good as I have a couple little projects that just popped up before I get going on it. Hope somebody out there likes it. My kids like the characters. That's totally a "My mum thinks I'm cute !" comment isn't it? I'm shutting up now.



P.s. There's some weird pixelation going on when i post this image for some reason. The .jpg looks fine here but when I post it it gets muddy so my apologies. :)

Children's Book

So I think these will be the 2 main characters for my childrens book. Any comments/feedback is welcomed as always. Before it is brought up, they will not be crosseyed the whole book. I'm still massaging the design a bit but I have a couple colored versions I'm pretty happy with that I may post this weekend. Just trying to decide what level of finishing I should do that is both conductive to the look and style of the book, but also conductive to me getting it done. :)

a few more sketches

Here's a few more quick AVS sketches.

Been working on both writing and illustrating a childrens book lately. So many things to consider. Hardcover vs softcover. Size and dimensions. Paper texture and quality. Special printing. Combination gloss & matte. How will it look on the shelf. Will it fit good in little hands. Maybe I'm thinking too much. This is unchartered territory and even though I'm more or less making it for my kids, it'd be nice to get it out there. The written part is pretty much complete, and I've pretty much nailed down the 2 main(and pretty much only) characters. Maybe I'll post the sketches this weekend for some feedback.

Enough rambles...enjoy.

Vat is this???.....More Vampyre stuff?

Here's a few rough sketches and quick FMV shots from A Vampyre Story. Some of these were earlier versions of characters, and some of these are characters that were left out for now. All pretty rough but still fun to share. :) I myself would love to see the other 2 women of low morale fiber make an appearance someday. We'll have to wait and see. :)

Hope those of you who played the game enjoyed it. And if there's anybody who's eyeballs somehow happen to fall upon this page hasn't already picked up A Vampyre Story, go now and pick up a copy. Don't bother putting on pants they will only slow you down. Pick one up for your loved ones, your neighbors, even your cat. Valentine's day is coming. Don't walk, run.
