Anyway, in spite of the hard work I am currently working on a few very time consuming illustration projects and I hope being able to share with you some of the early results on the following months. Also, I’ll be opening a little store on this blog with prints and stickers of my work as soon as I can guarantee a proper attention to anyone interested in buying.
The following painting is a texture sketch for one illustration for a story book of my own I’m working on in my bits of free time, it is called Bajo el techo verde (literally: under the green roof).
Vahlia reaches for the starry sky
I am not telling you what the story is about, but this is the moment when the main character, a girl named Vahlia, sees the sky for the first time and extends her hands up to it like if she could touch the night light. So I want this scene to hold a lot of my feelings about the sky (so, among other things, I has to be blue and sparkly).
The picture for the book is nothing like this, but I had to toy with some different effects to find what I really wanted to do so the painting would look the way I needed. This came out in the while and I really like the way it looks.
Hope you like it too.
Until next time,
