Concept Illustrations for New Graphic Novel Series

It is amazing how much time it takes to create a new world, write scenes, pull it all together into cohesive illustrations and then edit, edit more and finally print. These things are what we are currently working on at my Whimsical Publishing company for an upcoming graphic novel series. For me, the between times are full of practicing, and more practicing! I’ve posted some of my concept illustrations on Whimsical and I thought you might enjoy popping over there to take a peek. Just follow this link –> https://whimsicalpublishing.ca/2016/12/05/concept-illustrations-for-new-graphic-novel-series/ or click on the image below. 🙂  (Oh and if you’d like to see more of my illustrations on a daily basis be sure to follow me at my Instagram account–> @whimsicalillustration )

I’ve been working through this illustration series on my Instagram account (@whimsicalillustration ) and thought it might be super fun to share it with you here. I’ve not yet finished the series (more to come so be sure to follow on Instagram) but I’ve been doing portraits of famous historical women in a manga illustrated style. I’ve shared all the the illustration on my Whimsical Publishing Blog so be sure to head out there to see more!

Light Study Illustration

Morning friends! Another little light study illustration for ya. This was a bit of a departure for me since it’s an indoor scene. Well kind of an indoor/outdoor scene – I really wanted to try raindrop on a window.
Hope you all have a lovely day even though it’s Monday!

Checking In – Illustrations Galore!

Hello friends! Just checking in to let you know that I am constantly creating! I have a painting commission in the works right now – a beautiful scene from Chania, Crete – can’t wait to show you that! I’ve also been continuing on in my quest to improve my lighting skills. I started out with the Light Study painting and have continued exploring light in these first two illustrations you see attached here.

I’ve also been working on hard on illustrating new colouring pages for Whimsical Publishing! As you can see I’ve been teaching myself more about digital tablet painting and I couldn’t resist adding some subtle colour touches of my own to these two new colouring pagesElvenQueen_Insta Beauty_Small
And while I’m at it I might as well show you a couple of the character design/children’s illustration work that I’ve been playing around with as well! I hope these all bring you a smile!
