Editorial Illustration II #8

Ugh! Here is my final book cover for "The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me" which I DO NOT really like. I was lazy (or under severe time pressure for this big deadline) so I didn't take the time to mask off the foreground elements, which means the background has that blotchy look, which I DON'T like... Also I'm not crazy about some of these colors and how the values all worked out.

I am still definitely figuring out how to use watercolors. I want to keep at it though, because I DO love how they look. When they work, it's the best I think. But I'm not there yet. I'm thinking about trying to set up a series of small paintings to do over the summer to get some more practice in. We'll see how it goes!

Anyways, this is DONE.
