People gathered around …

People gathered around and demanded an explanation. They all rushed to the kitchen to investigate the hand’s amputation. Nothing in this world could have prepared them for what they discovered. A scene so gory and gruesome… they never recovered!

The most time consuming part of illustrating my book is character design. I’m new to the Blender software and turning my 3d characters into digital puppets, I find, is a rather difficult process. The characters in the above pic are OK for posing but anything that would require the slightest movement, such as a simple gif animation, would require more work. I will need to work on that as I intend to animate my Amelia Dyer poem. But for the printed version of the picture book  it will do just fine.

 

Where’s my food?

Just started working on a new illustration for my picture book Amelia Dyer. I’m designing a Victorian-inspired restaurant and this is the first guest! In the next few days I’m hoping to put some food on her plate, add a handsome date and give her a chair to sit on!
