FMP: A Kestrel For A Knave Cover (Work In Progress)

So here is the first of the workings for a book cover for my final major project... this one being Barry Hines' - A Kestrel For A Knave.

As you can see it is first of all majorly unfinished & very much a work in progress with much more to do in terms of background and bringing it together as an overall piece but I'm liking the direction it's going so far so fingers crossed it goes ok anyways :)

Have taken a large amount of inspiration from Ron Guyatt's artwork, please take the time to look up his work, it's brilliant in every shape & form of art!!

Ok soooo I haven't today done any work as such for current projects but I remembered a drawing I did a month or so ago of Charizard and thought I would colour it in ... so here it is, so far anyways!

Japan Tsunami Appeal: Ganbare Nippon - Big Helper

Hi everyone, in light of everything that happened to Japan in regards to the earthquake & Tsunami I felt inclined to do a little drawing as part of an appeal for Illustrators.

Here is mine, featuring a helper & his tool box, which hopefully will bring a little bit of joy & happiness to anybody seeing it. Hope people like it, it's supposed to be a symbol of anybody being able to help really, in light of anything that has happened :)

Thoughts & best wishes are with those in Japan right now.

Final Project + Tree Time Tales

Been a good three weeks(ish) since my last post, so apologies to those whom do take the time to take a quick look every now & again :)

Am at the stage at college now of being given my final project, in which I am to do 10 Front Covers from particular books & an accompanying poster for one, I was given a list of choices, to then pick ten. The likes of 'Of Mice & Men', 'Perfume' and such like are present. I haven't made a start upon these as of the moment but plan to do so sometime over this week...

The other project I have been given is that of 'Tree Time Tales', a project in which I am to illustrate in any way I deem appropriate an old story/fable/tale that can be relevant in current day. I chose to do one of Aesop's being that of 'The Peacock & The Crane', with the overall moral of 'fine feathers don't make a fine bird'..... So basically a well groomed/good looking person doesn't necessarily make them a nice/kind person.

The following is the line art I have done for the piece, with obvious chinese art influences :) I aim to colour with digitally but with definite understanding and reference to traditional chinese ink artwork.
Am pleased with the line work anyways so fingers crossed it all goes well!
