This video follows up the video about rough sketches in the video that you can see below. In this video I’m drawing the final artwork for Dragon Red on to Seawhite Heavy Cartridge paper and then painting it with Winsor and Newton Neutral Tint watercolour (link below) to create a greyscale image for my black and white book, Dragon Red, which is the final part of my Dragon Trilogy.
This video shows the layout galley proofs that I use to work out where the illustrations are going to go in my new book Olympia – Run like the wind.
The drawings are very rough, but they provide the skeleton of the final drawing, in their final position, so I know exactly how the drawing will fit. These drawing are now with my editor, who will check them over and make any suggestions if she feel the story can be illustrated better or if she thinks I’m not making something clear. When I get the all clear from her, I’ll start on the finished artwork. Meantime, I need to finish writing book three! This is a bit of a production line and I have to keep my wits about me as to which book I’m working on.
