Robot In Bed 02

Look familiar? I've reworked this old image to fit a book project I'm working on. All the long and thin images I've been posting are part of it but I've still got plenty more to do. Stay tuned!

I've recently signed with Lemonade Illustration Agency. I've been waiting until my work is on their site to post the news. There's nothing you won't have seen here, but please go have a look anyway!

Here's to a fruitful relationship for both of us!

A Tale of Two Backgrounds

Here's the inital thumbnail. I had a clear idea of where I was going with this image. What hadn't really crossed my mind was the background. I pushed on, developing the drawing and inking it.

Pleased with the resulting line drawing I jumped into Photoshop and begain to play with colour options. At first I went too bright, then messed around with colour options, initially thinking that a brightly coloured background would make things exciting and dynamic.

In practice, it didn't work. I tried three or four... ok, twelve options, and nothing was working. I loved my linework, but was nervous about leaving the drawing so open. I created another option with a cavernous background that looked a little James Bond-y and a little too... comic book-y. I like the comic book link in my illustration but not so it's pigeon-holed... Hmmm. Not really what I was going for...

After a long battle, I've settled for 2 finals! Hopefully in posting them I can get on with other things and not think about them again for a while. If you have an opinion on which one you like more, let me know!
