Field trip to the Alpaca Farm – book illustration

girl knitting with alpaca

I have been working on some color studies for my next book – Field trip to the Alpaca Farm. The story is written down and the text has been mapped out. I have about half of it sketched in chicken scratch. I am just starting to do the real drawing and color mapping. This illustration isn’t a finished product – but you can see where it’s going.

I still haven’t decided how I am going to do this … Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter 5, or Old School with pen and ink, acrylic wash, and colored pencil. They would all work – but they would all come out looking so different. I may just play with this illustration in all 4 styles and see which one I like best.

Luckily, I don’t have to decide today. I would love to hear your comments …
