:damphyr: Finished piece of the bookillustration


The drawing for the book is finally finished.
I'm very happy with the result :)

I had to add a watermark on it for Art theft. I hate it when people take other peoples work. :shakefist:

You don't wanna know how much time this drawing took. Like every cm is done with atleast 2 or 3 different pencils.

The girl in front is the main character from the book.
Her name is Ajala.

And this whole illustration will be the cover. So the dark side of this drawing is on the back and the light side with Ajala etc is on front.

The writer of this book: Bianca Mastenbroek was very happy with this drawing.

The title of this deviation is the title of her book.
Bottenduider < I dont know how to translate that in english xD


Thanks for looking
Love you all :wave: :heart:

:damphyr: I used this stock as reference for her face:

All I can say is that I'm stunned.
You truly are an amazing artist and I aspire to be at least half as good as you one day.
Kudos, you deserve much of it. :D

you ask for critique, you got it =)

Except for the light and dark side idea, you're composition is pretty much random. the girl seems to be pasted on instead of actually looking like she belongs there. The dark bush which blends in with her hair that is placed right behind her head contributes to that.
focalpoint is at the light spot on the grass near the right of the lake, not really your intention I hope.
The whole drawing feels unbalanced.
You've made it look like there's a shadow behind the vulcano, this makes it look like the volcano is 2D.
All this contributes to the feeling that this drawing consists of stacked 2D planes in front of each other. Sky - volcano - hills with castle - bush - girl.
I really like your lake, because you're tonal use really comes to it's right there.

I know you're already finished, but there's just some things to keep in mind when drawing besides only making sure that every seperate piece is "pretty". Be sure to keep an eye of the overal composition and especially the focal point, which should probably be on the girl. I'd advice to for example give her cheeks more color, make her jump out of the picture by choosing more daring colors, this will make it less bland. You could make her bigger, don't be afraid to make her cover up some of your pretty lake

hope that helps =) don't get me wrong, the picture is "pretty", but you're missing some points =)

It's done, it took 4 months, but it's done :party: wow, I was wondering why it took so long at first, but if you used several differnet colours per square cm, then I'm not surprised :phew: the purple sky is nice, and the comet and volcano look cool too 8-)

Wow ik wist eerst helemaal niet dat jij nederlands was. hey, ik ook!

BTW. Jij kan zo goed met kleurpotloden tekenen, serieus! En nog jong ook.

Hier moet je zeker veel geld voor hebben gekregen...

Ik ga meteen kijken of de slegte het boek binnenkrijgt.

Beautiful, I love the colors. I didn't realize there was a light side and a dark side until you pointed it out, it's very subtle and interesting! Great job on the bushes and foliage, they look very detailed and realistic. I can't imagine my self going through the whole process. Great Job! :thumbsup: =D
