WIP Cover #10 Color-

Not liking any of the dandelion-fluff versions that I've attempted, I've decided to go ahead and do the preliminary painting on the additional covers before going back and refining them all -

So, here's the final cover for book #10 - scanned and printed out -

Some initial washes...

Filling in all the base color -

- some additional layers to deepen areas -

-and some modeling of leaves and horse before leaving this one to go onto the next cover...

Lovely. I especially adore all the colours of green.

You earn my respect for sticking with the "pretty-pretty" on a daily basis. I'd go completely bonkers!

Thanks Pamela,

moreidlethoughts - haven't you heard my anti-twinkle rants and the great need I feel to draw creepy, oozy monsters? :-)

I love the leaf shapes......I'd be so tempted to make the hooves bigger.,,, You are a good person (and employed too) keeping to the clean and pretty. Your monster day will come!
