Roley 'emerges' from behind the tree!
A new version of 'Roley Moley's Christmas' will be published soon and as my previous blog on illustrating 'Roley Moley Goes in Search of the Moon' was so popular I thought I would share a few images of Roley coming to 'life'!
After doing some rough sketches I will come up with a picture I am happy with and start to do a proper drawing. This image shows the pencil outline and where I have started to ink in Roley.
Here is the picture now I have
penned the outlines and rubbed out the pencil.
Now I have started to colour and add
light and shade to the picture - oh and this is where I try to avoid dipping my paintbrush in the big mug of tea I always have at my side!
Here is the picture well on the way to being finished. Many times things go wrong though and I am not happy with the picture and have to start all over again!
This illustration shows Roley looking up as someone very special comes into the room.
I wonder who it could be? If you would like to find out click on the picture to get a
link to the current ebook.
But don't forget to look out for the new version this Christmas.
