Harris Hawk Pencil Studies

I’m off and running on my SCBWI Mentor Program assignments.  I’m so excited and fortunate to be working with Deborah Nourse Lattimore. At our Tahoe Retreat one-on-one, me and Deborah set up some assignments for the next six months.  Get to know three animals really well with a pencil.  Here is the first.

It just so happens that the Illustration Friday Prompt is “sight”.

Cover Art Challenge – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

ThinkArt challenges Nevada Artists with projects of many kinds. The most recent one is to re-illustrate the covers of the Harry Potter series.  I was randomly given book two The Chamber of Secrets. The only restriction was to use the original Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling   font.  The art is pencil on Aquabee Charcoal Paper.  Text was drawn and added in Photo Shop.

A quick tour through pencil thoughts arriving at the final art.

Thank you to Dinh, Elaine, Pablo, Brian, Liz, Jessica, Evan and Jimmy for your critique, support and guidance.  This was really fun (not easy) to work through.
