Here’s a peek at my newest picture book.

I recently finished a new book, Pirate’s Lullaby- Mutiny at Bedtime, written by Marcie Wessels (Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 2015).
Here are a few early pics of the process…sketches, etc.
|Pencil sketches for pirate boy character.|
|Sketches for pirate dad character.|
|Very rough pirate heads for reference (super sculpey).|
|Pirate head in different positions and lighting.|
|More heads in different positions and lighting.|
|A final illustration spread with reference sheets.|
|Everything is started but a lot of painting ahead. Oil paint on canvas (acrylic underpainting).|
