Other short story by Jan. The stories are already published in audio version. Whoever feels interested is welcomed to check here: https://soundcloud.com/cool-paparazzi/sets/short-stories Very nice recordings, with sound effects and all.
The world outside is green and wet like Amazon jungle; it’s warm, but raining all the time. Basia has lost almost all of her winter fur. And I’ve made a lot of sketches again; shopping cart book is roughly planned by now. This time I’ve returned to old habits and I’ve done some modelling first. I thought it would be difficult to draw this car thirteen times, at various angles, keeping the perspective right. Each wheel consists of four ellipses that need to be contructed; I feel a bit sick when I think about it. I’m not sure if I’ll use the models directly. I suppose I’ll rather use wire renders as a base for a drawing (that’s why materials are so sketchy – they are likely to be deleted). This is first time when I try to incorporate something 3d into a children book illustration. I’m really curious if this method will save me some time or not.
Boys have gone back to the city, the house is quiet again. One more Oz drawing before going back to serious work (assuming drawing shopping carts and pirates is serious work at all!)
That’s what I do on holiday; read old Oz books once again… This is Ozma trying to save Queen of Ev and her eleven children.
“Mom, are there mouses on the moon?” This is one of late evening drawings completed at the last cup of tea, just before going to bed. Sometimes it takes quite long: 10 minutes one day, 20 minutes next day and so on. And now it’s time to go and cook something; the whole family is coming back home this weekend. Have Happy Easter, everyone.
Ice dragon and white lion again. This is cover picture for Jan’s short stories – if only Jan says everything’s fine with this piece, short stories are finished (from my point of view). It took me the whole day. I’ve made one little change and then the next one was necessary, and next… some pictures are like this. I had to redraw some parts and compose them with the rest. This time it’s digital illustration with painted elements, not the other way round (usually my illustrations are paintings with elements of digital edition). Well, we’ve had snow, rain and hail all the day long in various combinations, so computer was a nice alternative.
