In between other projects I've finished another brief for the Children's Book Diploma I've been doing. This time it was all about working with watercolours, something I don't use too often so it was a fun challenge. Firstly we had to draw 3 or 4 animals doing funny things, paint them in a bright colour then use a contrasting colour to add detail or patten, I did find this a bit hard, knowing who much to let the first colour dry before adding the second but I think they work ok and I love the fox.
The second piece was an illustration for a story called 'Fiery Fred'
about a young dragon who can't control his fiery breath and has set fire
to a village. Again there are bits I'm happy with like Fred and bits
that on reflection I could improve, like smoke from the fire but I was
happy to get an overall mark of 76% for both pieces.
