I'm working on the cover illustration for the new children's book:"Duncan's Magic Garden". These are the initial steps of the painting, building an India ink structure, like the "bones" of the piece. After this will be many many layers of colored pencil, watercolor and Acrylic washes, then more layers!
I will also be doing several intricate borders, with the main character inside like the one shown below.
Duncan (the main character in the book) is one of the famous Fabbitz whom I have painted many times. Here is Master Duncan surrounded by fall colors (right)
You can find out more about the Fabbitz here, and below are the Fabbitz, seen here at their Big Birthday Bash!
