Children's Book Line Art: Pages One through Twenty!
Here is all the line art for my book so far. I have gone through all the pages and corrected any mistakes that I missed. It is what normally happens when I create a drawing - mistakes do not become apparent until a few days later or in some cases, weeks later. Line art is arguably the most important step since the line art acts as a guide for the painting. It is normal for me to spend more time on the line art instead of the actual painting. I have four more interior pages to go to conclude the story. I also have a title page, dedication page, front cover and back cover. I would like to start painting my book before the year finishes. The text for each image will be contained by a rectangle word balloon and will be one or two sentences at most. I know what the text will generally say, but it is not carved into stone at this point.
