Final Steps for Childrens Book Illustration - The Cats Meow

I am approaching the final steps for my first illustration of The Cat's Meow by Jana Laiz. This afternoon I added more layers of colored pencil and adjusted some proportions and symmetry. I am now about to do the final details which I really think is the most enjoyable part of the process....taking the painting up and over that place of "nice little painting" to "wow!" (hopefully)

Jana is the author of the award nominated Weeping Under This Same Moon and Elephants of the Tsunami

Beautiful as always Melody! Is the white heart on her forhead integral to the storyline? It's cute!
