Working on my finished pieces for my book as part of the SCBWI Picture Book Dummy Challenge. Finally finished the sketches and have chosen the two I will finish.  Looking forward to the agent critique.
I'm planning to complete them on the computer. I usually work in Photoshop but for this project I think I'll work in Painter X3, I recently bought the program and have been practicing with the brushes.  I like the look of painter's brushes, they're closer in appearance to real brushes.  The challenge has been navigating the many settings for each brush. It's been quite a challenge.
Yesterday I worked a couple of postcard ideas. Here's one of them. I'm still not completely happy with the shadow so I may add a background later.
