After all the feedback I have received in the last couple of months, I decided to go in a different direction with my entire design. I am not disregarding all the work I have put in up until this point as it has helped me get to where I am now, but I am exploring different illustration styles and experimenting more in order to get to where I need to be.
This means I have to work even harder to get everything done in time as I need to start character design basically from scratch. It will be a tough job but I think I am up to the challenge and I am feeling really motivated to get working on the book. I will admit recently I became very disheartened with the project but I am really ready to start making progress.
Already getting some where with sketches and I will upload photos in upcoming blog posts 🙂
