Raj in Progress



This yet another Raj spread, but unfinished. I LOVE painting closeups like this and spending hours on the details of the fur and face. Here I just established the basic colors. Over the next day or so I'll keep layering thin washes of paint until it has a nice, rich textured look.

Also I really love orangish yellows and greens together. Most of my work seems to have that color combo in one way or another.

I am in total agreement with the love of closeups! This is going to be a wonderful book with you as its artist. I am SO happy for you!

Aww this is so beautiful Paige! I feel the same way you do when working on a close up. Is like you get to be more intimate with that particular character or moment.

This is going to be such a lovely book I'm sure!!! And yes, whenever I think of you I think orange and yellows... :o)
