I'm re-working two old peices. These always got me great comments when I first started to take my portfolio around late in 2007, (I think that's right?) I work so differently now. Plus, I think the boy in the first one is too old, although I want to draw him somewhere else. These girls were inspired by my very first Illustration Friday topic, "Plain".
I hope to post these finishes early next week!
After great critiques from the conference, I wanted to add a touch of color tot he horses as well as ome more black. The horses are unfinished on purpose. I hope this makes sense but it's tough without the text. Tim Gillner, from Boyd's Mills Press by the way, really liked it though.

We were given text by Tim Gillner, and art director from... oh, I've got to double check. (Bad me!) I picked one about penned up wild horses needing rescue. I decided to do them in black and white because the text described them as having "dull eyes, and "rusty coats" when imprisoned. The cowboy notices the lead mare still has fire in her eye - hence the color there. I hope he likes it!
This is Sophie getting ready for her big brother's return from the Army. I wanted to do some more sequential character peices plus I discovered mixing gouache with matte medium and glazing medium.
