Latin Beats for Kids Illustration

(sorry for the copyright but a girl's got to try and protect her art, right?)

Something new to share! I had so much fun working on this illustration last week. After meeting with my boss to discuss the art direction I was set free to do what I wanted. Thankfully the client loved it. Woohoo and phew! :)

I thought I would share a bit of my process for jobs like this. I started with a few thumbnails to rough out my concept (sorry, I forgot to scan the other rough to show). My roughs are always so tiny. The image above is the thumbnail I chose to work from for the final piece, it's about 2" x 2". I always do a little research for some inspiration/education, plug in my earphones and hunch over the little square and let blossoming ideas pour out. Then a quick scan and I begin the digital drawing and coloring. Then "Ta-Da!" I got a nice illustration to be proud of.

This is a wonderful piece of art. The colors and movement are so vivid. You should definitely do more pieces like this. I believe it is my favorite. Thank you for sharing it with us and showing us some of the variety you're capable of.

Gorgeous and bright! Great colours and fun feel! You have to stick the copyright on or someone will just come along and rip it off! I thought it was rather discreet anyway :D
