Megan finally....started to ROCK!

My publisher wanted to create a back cover which includes a cover for the second book series " Megan Hearts Guitar". What a smart/bright/brilliant idea and concept for teenage girls! Well, I'm looking forward to work on the second book.
Now it's time for the real footages.

Stage 1: Getting the basic layout and concept. Sent it over to publisher. Approved.

Stage 2: Cleaned up sketch.

Stage 3: Refined, detail sketch. Ready to scan.

Stage 4 : Scanned and colored in Photoshop CS 2. All Done!

Two Drawings

Here are two drawings for speedway's children coloring pages. Base on the their designs and descriptions they gave me. Unfortunately, the project doesn't involved lots of character development (lots of concepts remind me too much of the movie "Cars"). But still, a good chance to practice. Lucky I was able to play with the composition and re-create some of their characters.

1. First Page I have done, but I did too much alternations of the main character, so i needed to re-draw part of it. But I like this one more.

2. The Second drawing got approved, noticed the guy in the middle changed a lot?

New Illustration!!

The first finished sketch, 8*12, Scanned in Photoshop

Color in photoshop, client wanted capcakes to be more subttle, and the face need to have more similarity to the real model

Face has changed. Client didn't like the new face, they want the old one.

Finished illustration.
Client changed their mind, so I m on my way to draw another cover for them.

I've spend so much time on this illustration..
The process of the whole is very very slow, but I think, making my client happy in the end is the key(sometimes is extremly hard). So in this project, my clients are constantly changing their mind, I followed every instructions that they had given.

: ( I need some rewards....
