Last year I did make one goal for myself, but looking back on it now, it may have been kind of lame. This year I want to focus on something that I can really take into my own hands. I'd like to get a nice portfolio together and start contacting illustration agencies. Below is the cover to the first story I have planned, it was made in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet and a brush by @loisvb (also known as "loish").
This next image was created in Procreate and is a prototype of the Choco Kitty idea. Notice how in the new piece the eyes are larger and ears are shorter, which I think add to the "cute factor." I also simplified the shading, got rid of the collar and replaced the party hat with a crown. The colors are brighter in the new digital painting as I felt the old ones were a bit too dull for a children's book. There's just something about the combination of pink and these shades of brown that I absolutely love.
