new book beginnings ~ db

I’m going to keep these annoyingly small and vague, but here are a few pieces of some of the book from the last few months. There are isolation layers, multi-spread colour and shape planning, details of the early life of a few pieces and colour and texture tests. Some stuff is carefully planned, other bits are wonderfully happy accidents.

View a slideshow of all the work-in-progress images including first sketches, reference material, mistakes, redraws, and tests, to final art at a much larger size, here.
