Thanks to dickbalzer for this among many awesome gif images of old animation techniques namely the zoetrope as seen in the image above. I chose this one to reblog as Halloween approaches this Thursday. Happy Halloween! Hope to start posting more often again. ~Cheers.
G is for Geography, the next page in my current children’s book project about Canada’s democracy. I had fun with this piece although it was a challenge to get the sizing and perspective correct for the world in the background. Overall, I’m quite happy. I think the colours turned out quite nicely.
Page F is for Freedom, another finished illustration for my current children’s book project entitled “Canada, Our Road to Democracy.” This piece illustrates the idea that Canadians have rights to Freedom including equality rights, meaning that everyone is equal before and under the law, irrespective of their race, religion, ethnic origin, sex, age or mental or physical disability. Cool.
Another page in the current children’s book I’m working on about Canada’s Democracy. This page is E is for Election. Pretty self explanatory. I’m pretty pleased with the way the lighting and the focal depth turned out.
The top image is the revision for this page. If you look closely the changes are subtle, but you’ll notice that the audience is blurred and the ground shadows of the characters are softened. Much better. The blurred background really helps the characters to stand out. This is the last page spread in the book I’m working on about Canada’s democracy for publisher Blossom Books.
