Stories and pirates. One begins as another finishes

I'm currently on a pirate fix. This one is still in progress.

But the one below here is completed just recently. That makes 2 pages of a Children's book that I have completed. I have more sketches to work on and then I should bundle it into a book dummy and send it out to some publishers.

One page closes as another ends. Progress is never ending. Keep drawing!

While I'm sorting out the final details of the storybook illustration I finished I wanted to start on a secondary illustration.

This pirate has just climbed aboard another ship and is about to do his job. Create havoc to an enemy pirate ship. Anyway, this image is all sketched out. It'll be painted in photoshop in the coming week or 2. The idea with it is to turn it into a birthday greeting card. This would be the front side, and then the inside fold would be an image of a small kid with baggy pirate clothes on with words to tie it together.

On a minor note, I'm still waiting to hear back from the Limkokwing University of Creative Technologies which I applied to school for. It would be an Advanced Diploma in Education. The best part? The school is in Malaysia, which I can't wait to get back to. Why? Because my Girlfriend lives there. And its also a very beautiful country. Hopefully they respond back soon.

Another page Painted

As I finish another page of the book (with added text soon to come) I feel like I'm starting to make some progress. There's still a long ways to go before its ready for a book dummy stage. But at least we're getting somewhere. The characters are coming to life finally. Keep Creating!

The above image is a detail of the story book page that i'm working on. It's nearing completion. This is a very close up image of the full page. Almost done with this illustration. Its been great creating it from the start.
