Redrawn expression on wolf

Hi gals,

Thanks for all the great feedback on last week's work. I will be working on all the points suggested and reposting so you can see my updates, but for now I've redrawn a previous piece ,that is the top one here, that I posted a couple of months back and hope it's gotten better! Don't know if you all remember it but whatever feedback you can give would be great. I've also redrawn the wolf's expression on page 15 and hopefully made him more menacing looking. All the text has been updated and in some parts completely rewritten so let me know what you think and if there are any typo's etc. I know right off the bat after looking at all of these layouts on one page that I need to make the tonality of the illo's more consistant so some don't look so washed out while others look too "contrasty". It's funny there's so much you don't notice until it all starts to come together. Looking forward to critiquing and seeing everyone's artwork for this week.

A bit more layout

Hi gals!

I've been working on the layout of my book dummy some more and will hopefully post some of it for tomorrow. Just ran out of time this past week with my nephew visiting from college. No excuses though. I will have something for tomorrow!!

Well here's some more!! Better late than never right!

Red runs into the Wolf !

Hi Gals,
As always thanks for the feedback on last weeks layouts for my book dummy. I'm quite happy with the way things have been moving along lately and will keep refining these pieces, with your help and support of course, until I feel confident enough to ship them off!! I've gone ahead and done another sketch here where Little Red runs into the nasty wolf for the first time. Hopefully she looks startled enough and he seems calm and collected with his sly approach. The text will be at the bottom of the page. I am going to keep the text outside of the art just to be consistent throughout the entire book dummy to give it more of a storybook feel like Carlyn suggested. Anyway let me know what needs to be worked on with this one and thanks in advance!

Updates on Sketches and Layouts

Hi gals,

Thank you so much for the feedback on my site. I am pretty happy with the way it has turned out so far and am working on fixing the stacking issue on the gallery page which seems to happen only when viewed on a smaller window but nevertheless isn't very appealing looking by any means. Gina, I included a Gallery page in addition to a Portfolio page so that if viewers just want to look at everything at once, like viewing a real portfolio, they can. I've heard some people don't like to have to look at thumbnails and open each one to see the full work. I guess maybe a solution would be to call the Gallery page "Thumbnails" so they know what to expect. Good point made though, thanks!
On another note here are some new layouts of my book dummy. I've focused here on making the mom look consistent in both illos. I don't know if you remember but she didn't look like the same person before, thus adjustments were made. I also straightened up Little Red and I hopfully got rid of her "Poltergeisty" turning head. Made the path more level too, before it looked like she was climbing up a hill! You be the judge. Happy Blogging!!
