Book Illustration Project Update
Filed under: Studio Illustration
Posted by: Paul McCall @ 5:13 pm

I told you I’d keep you updated on this book illustration project. Well, after a day lost to no power courtesy of an Indiana lightning storm (15 hours with no power) and various other more mundane delays I was able to get back to it.

The Shelby Cobra won’t be gray in the final, I need to ask the client what color it should be.

And now I know it’s blue!

And now the background is almost finished. Lots of building details dealt with today but still more to do before I move on to the figure.

Finished line work and starting color on the female figure, still lots to do on this one to get the look I’m after.

I decided I needed to knock back the building behind the car a bit so I went in with the pastel tool in Painter to mute the colors a little and add some texture. I also ran a  blur on the more colorful buildings on the left for the same reason. I’m going to call this one finished.

I’m currently (when I posted this, not specifically when you may be reading this) working on a book illustration project. Here are a few of the line drawings.

I’ll keep you updated on the various stages of this project.

See the previous post to explain the stamp.

New Studio Commission Caricature

Last week I had a quick turn-around on a commissioned piece for a birthday present.

Sorry for the overlaid copyright stamp. There’s been a lot of stealing of caricaturists work going on in the internet. Several of my pieces and those of other caricaturists from around the world were stolen by a guy in Dodge City, KS. and placed on his site to promote his caricature business. In many cases he removed the original artists signature and replaced it with his own. He did that with at least one of my pieces. Hence the overlay stamp. Probably won’t stop this criminal practice but it’s an attempt to make it more difficult.
