This weeks illustration was based off Richard Peck’s book “This Ghost Belonged to Me”. It was also made into a movie by Disney in the 70’s called, “Child of Glass”. In this story moment, the boy named Alexander is talking to the Creole ghost girl Inez. She’s telling him that he must solve the riddle about the Child of Glass before Halloween. If he doesn’t she’ll be cursed to haunt him for the rest of his life.
This weeks Colour Collective color was Mars Violet so it reminded me of the color of mud. Then I remembered a lesser known fairy tale called “The Pig Brother”. Story goes since the little boy kept his room dirty, the fairy told him to go find his brother, while she fixed his room. He talks to a squirrel, a wren, and a cat asking if they were his brothers. They deny they are his brothers because they are clean. Along comes a pig, which the boy tries to avoid asking the question to, and the pig tells him that they are brothers. The fairy shows up and asks if the little boy would like to live like his brother the pig. The little boy says no, so he makes a deal with the fairy to keep his room clean and he wont live with his brother the pig.
Finding time to work on Sketch Dailies has been quite a challenge with work and classes starting on CGMA. But I at least try to get a good sketch in so when I get the chance I can take it into Photoshop to flesh it out more. Here is Billy the Kid the initial sketch along with the final colored version.
My second entry for Sketch Dailies. Had to add the Three Little Pigs. Cant have one without the other.
My first Sketch Dailies entry. Looking forward to this movie!
Since I go through my sketchbooks, I decided to give them each a face to match the size of the book. Started with the small one first and decided to do the other two as well. Hope you like them. Now its time to fill them up with sketches 😀
Well here is a few sketchbook pages from a few books I’ve filled. Onto a new set of sketchbooks!
Okay with the craziness of the holidays, I totally forgot to post some of the sketches in my sketchbook. I’m usually on top of posting my work in Instagram and Tumbler (edwardiantaylor). So if you wanna follow me there, thats where I usually post stuff. Thanks again for all your support for the past year. I’ve learned a ton within this last year, and I look forward to another year of learning and growth. Thanks everyone!
