"Eyebrow" story illustrations

Hi, Here's my submission for your contest. I am a very experienced children's book illustrator and everything I do is totally original and drawn by hand. I only use digital tools for enhancement and colour correction. I have made comments on each file. Before illustrating the situations of a story I always work closely with the author to get the characterisation correct. In my submission I have given examples of this. In your story I think facial expressions are going to be very important and I have shown how I can achieve this. So many illustrators can illustrate one facial expression but in a book every page needs to show the characters behaving differently right to the end. My approach is fun, not sinister or serious. I have made up some situations but I'm sure you have lots more. I've separated the girls age-wise so they each have a personality as well. I have not used Photoshop because I do not like the smooth effect it produces. I hope you like my ideas.

    Thankyou for your comment. I avoid drawing and colouring in Photoshop because the finished look is always so smooth - its always too digital looking. I am trying to develop my own brushes etc to overcome this. I am steadily building up a library of textures which I am going to use in Illustrator as well.

    Many thanks for your feedback. I get asked to illustrate a variety of children's story books, but your idea of the huge eyebrows really appeals. I can see some fantastic situations which children of all ages would love!

    Thank you for your submission! I like the rain-drenched eyebrows and the girls. I think you've captured the fun that can be had with his eyebrows. He is just in his 30s, though, and not a granddad, so no white / gray hair. Great job!
