A bit of a problem on the illustration front today… #amwriting #art #illustration #picturebooks
I’ve got to the point in the picture book that requires me to create a bat cave… But I’m suddenly at a lose on how to continue.
Up to now the illustrations have been whimsical drawings of the sun and moon, but now I’m looking at creating an ecosystem. I still want it to be whimsical but look like what it is meant to be – a bat cave.
So do I go cartoony or realistic?
Or a little in between?
I’m not certain…
I think I may have to get the sketchbook out and do some experimenting. Last thing I want is for it to be blocky. It would just look wrong with the other illustrations…
I think I need to aim for whimsical and realistic.
