I took an illustrator course in February which pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to do my first digital drawing. I also learned how to do design sheets and pattern designs. I also became a lot better with my time management and to-do lists… somewhat 🙂
If anyone is looking for a great course, I can highly recommend this one at WeIllustrate.co.uk.
Following the fairy to the end of the dark street, she stops in front of a gully cover. Waving her wand she removes the lid and starts going down.
Grog was anything but delighted about their underground journey, while Sasha felt quite at home in the cave like environment. “Where does the tunnel lead to?” she asks. “Have some patience, will you?” the fairy says. “None paying clients are always the worst” she mumbles to herself.
Part 3 of this spontaneous watercolour illustration story. Here are part 1 and 2.
Not sure where this ostrich is going, but lets say he was depressed because he really wanted to fly and realized that he couldn’t. So when the girl came along and saw him she had an idea, helping him and his wish to fly….
Tried something completely different as well for the raven prompt. Although I don’t feel like drawing this character is really me. I really prefer drawing animals and I feel like I haven’t found my style yet when it comes to drawing people appropriate for children’s books. I will keep on practicing though.
I am still on track with my Inktober drawings, I just haven’t managed to take photos and upload them yet. They will follow shortly.
I thought it is about time to introduce the second children’s book that I have been illustrating. It is now available on Amazon.
Unfortunately the story is only available in Icelandic, and I don’t think there are that many Icelandic readers here. But maybe there are aspiring Icelandic learners. It is certainly suitable for them as it is intended for children 6 years and older.
The first book I ever illustrated was the story of Nobbi and his pug Kobbi, written by my friend Norbert, whichyou can find here.
The Adventures of the Little Fly is written also by an Icelandic author, Rúna Vala, and tells the story of a little fly who lives in a tree in a garden. Puzzled by the changing seasons and the change the garden goes through the little fly sets our on unexpected adventures.
The fly has no name as it is just a fly, not a very small one, but not a very big one either. Just about average.
