These were sketched using the extremely versatile and expressive Velocity Sketcher from the Ink Pen collection.
I’m currently working with a children’s author to bring a fantastic story about a young boy and his pet Tyrannosaur to life. I’ve used Mischief to form the concepts and Corel Painter to produce the finished work.
I think it’s fair to say that some of those pieces won’t feature :) Great fun creating them though.
I used the T-Rex from Jurassic Park as reference for the more detailed / less cartoon-like shots. I guess if you’re going to have a dinosaur as a pet you really should have the most fearsome of all!
We’re hoping to have the work completed and self-published for christmas.
I was recently tidying up my hard drive and came across some concept work I’d created for my first picture book A Frog Named Bob.
I thought they were fun so thought I’d share them.
This and my other picture books for children can be found on my page My Picture Books for Children.
The images were created using Procreate on iPad with a Wacom stylus.
The wonderful thing about writing stories is that you can be ridiculous.
My son is a proper livewire and has no apparent sense of danger. So it makes perfect sense that he should befriend a T-Rex from baby to fully grown terrifying carnivore.
Imagine the fun that could be had if such a friend went to school with him :)
Here’s a quick concept sketched using Mischief.
