So, for my core illustration class, we were assigned to design a book cover for the novel Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen. Luckily, I'd read this a few months ago, so it was pretty easy for me to do something more narrative, or that related to the characters. I'm not that happy with the colours, in fact I kind of like my original paintings better. Maybe I'll comp them together again from scratch at some point. My professor seemed to like it, though, so it's not all bad.

I did a little greyscale portrait of myself for one of my drawing classes. Ink on illustration board. Usually I will use ink on watercolour paper, so this was a little bit different for me. The ink did handle nicely on the surface, though, so I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Then I decided to return to my evil Photoshop ways and colourize it. Also quite happy with how this turned out! Maybe will try this technique out again some time. The contrast is pretty good, I think.

A quick watercolour painting of Batman, holding Robin's cape and eye mask. What's the message here? Well, that Batman's cape will swoosh even when other fabric is unaffected. Whoops. I'm happy with the how the painting itself turned out, though.
