Artwork Description

An illustrated children's book I've been working on at university. The original is quite big, so much of the detail was lost in the colour print, which is a shame, because I spent countless hours working on this! It's a two-page spread. I'm happy with how it turned out.

Awww, shucks, Jessica! The light was SO hard to ahcieve, and overall this piece took forever to finish, but I am so happy with how it turned out. Thanks again!

The lighting is incredible in this piece, and was probably very hard to achieve. What a magical feeling this work exudes. After you were kind enough to let me know someone had stolen my art and claimed it as their own, I clicked your link here at the bottom of your e-mail. I'm so glad I did, what inspiring works - but this one is definately my fav!

Hehe.. I love this! The wolves are so cute! I love their eyes... big and cute and spooky at the same time. Nice work!

Thanks Jordan! This was colour copied, so the quality's pretty low....alas.

Of course this is phenomenal in it's full view, but I'm glad you posted the detail just to see the level of texture you've got in there. And with watercolour! Blowing me away...

Thanks, Anne! I'm hoping to continue working on my book. I'm kinda put off though by all the work involved! But I'm enjoying the challenge.
