Day 11- Illustrator Tour with Dawn Phillips


It's Monday, and I've finished the sketch provided to you on Day 9. The story-board illustration is from a page of "Roggie's Pet Froggie".

The illustration was completed utilizing a digital art program. Also, the medium selected was oil pastels along with various lighting effects.

Why are the characters outlined in black? Why are the colors darker in the front portion of the illustration?

Here's a couple of great questions. The reason why Dawn outlines the characters in black , she feels it's important to draw attention to the actions of the story-line.

The reason why the colors are darker towards the front, it's to keep the action bold, create the illusion of depth, and demonstrates vibrant color contrasts.

You can expect further humorous illustrations with this whimsical story.
