A Room With a View

As you guys know from the below post, I was just doing this illustration as a sample piece-- was a for a kids book, but I declined the offer. It was a severely underpaid project, and I've had my share of those a long the years- so I was like, uh-- yea-- that'll happen! I still like this page though, and have done it in 2 different colours. :) This will forever be it's happy home!

Very good work.

I love this! How about naming it "A Room With a View" :)

Sam said...

They're both good - the color is nice on the top one, but the muted colors of the bottom give it a more moonlit feel.

Great illustrations!

Oh yeah, I don't get how some clients assume you'll do a crapload of work for peanuts... it sux how undervalued we illustrators can be sometimes! Anyway - rant over haha! These are awesome Abz, I love the muted colour scheme, but the brighter one really catches my eye. I hope you get a book commission that PAYS WELL in the future!!

Great stuff man, I like the contrast between the curves and straight lines...I don't know if that was intentional or not

Lovely work

I'm definitely diggin' the top one. I could easily see that being animated in a kids show.

Gavin Goo said...

I second Adam. It will look great animated :)
