Backstage Trip 2 - The Move by Cathy86 Backstage Trip 2 - The Move by Cathy86
W00t, I invite you to another Backstage Trip :)

It's another illustration from my upcoming children's book that will be released at the end of this month. (almost 2 weeks left! :dance: )

You can see the little sheep boy Lenon with his parents. The farmer's name is Farmer Bumblebee :)

Well, it's like this pic

1st pic: The Sketch
2nd pic: Painting with acrylics on canvas
3rd pic: proof print; dummy book (I had to cover the text. The original proof is much nicer. It's really hard to shoot those proof pics because they're so glossy! :hmm:)

Hope you like it :hug:

you're so inspiring!! I'm working on a childrens book at the moment and seeing your stuff just reminded me of how joyful it is to see a finished illustration ready to go and be published! How long did the painting take you to do? I'm so envious of your skills!

Thank you dear; I really appreciate your kind words :hug:
Well, from the pure sketch to the finished canvas illustration...I think it took me three or four days.
I wish you good luck and success with your own book :) :nod:

Thankyou very much :D I really appreciate your words (too)!
Four days is great! It takes a lot of consideration before you apply paint, and with all that detail I bet you have to be extra careful too!

Yes, but it's more that I had to work on several illustrations in that four days. So it was not only this work alone. And beneath that, I had to write the story. So I can tell that there's a lot of sweat and heartblood in my book. But it was worth that I thinl.

that is adorable :) what an amazing job you do with your paintings. Can I ask how you transfer your sketch onto the canvas?

I transfered the sketches onto the canvas with eraseable graphite paper :)
