Cover Art for The Plateau: Transferring the Sketch

Jul 31, 2012 | Process, Sketches, Works in Progress

Welcome to my works in progress page. I’ll be sharing sketches and paintings as I work on various projects.

This month I’m working on a variety of projects, one of which is cover art for a novel. The Plateau—Voices of the Earth by Maureen Dudley (Hawk’s Cry Publications, an imprint of Word Keepers, Inc.) will be released in spring of 2013. The cover illustration features animals that are either on the endangered or threatened species list, and appear in the book on a desert-like plateau. 

I started this illustration with a sketch, made some revisions after receiving feedback from the editor, and am now in the process of transferring the drawing to watercolor paper. The next step will be to paint the background sky and block in the basic color. Check back soon for updates.
