Final project for Illustration class: Children’s book cover

Created with Photoshop. I was marked down by the Instructor for not having a more finished end product and also a lack of adequate shading used on the characters. I admit that I do not find my final project to be 100% complete, as it is still a little bit rough around the edges. I learned a great deal from this illustration class, the most important being the illustrator process. Of 12 thumbnail sketches I developed 3 of my best. Of those 3 I chose this one for the final project, thought I made adjustments. I did not create a grey scale version before colorizing because of lack of time but I think this is one of the most important steps for good shading and contrast.
