Progress on the Illustration

Making some progress on one of the sample illustrations for the novel pitch. The first image is the start of the flatting process. Each element gets painted in with its own solid color. For this drawing I’m working in three sections: foreground, middle ground and the background. By keeping the elements separate, it’ll make it a lot easier later on to establish depth and get the tonal range right.


In the illustration below, I’ve finished the flatting and have started working on the lighting and textures. And you can see where I started adding some fog in the middle ground. That’s when having the elements on separate layers makes things easy.


Hopefully the next installment will have the finished piece.

    A lot more to come. I’ll have more on the writing process too. And, hopefully, if the book sells to my publisher, I’ll flesh out the site with some of my magic research and also a webcomic.
