Illo Friday "layers" and latest work
I haven't posted for ages either, so I'm really happy that I have work that fits this month's prompts! Like lots of people, I did The Princess and the Pea for Illo Friday "Layers" (I can't believe how many of us had that same idea - it's such a great story). Mine is just a quickie and I really admire the beautiful ones the rest of you did.
The dragon is a picture I've just done for my children's illustration diploma with the London Art College. The assignment was to create a vignette of a young dragon who has accidentally set someone's thatched cottage on fire and is horrified. You can see that my paper has buckled a bit. I used a cheap paper because I wanted a really white, smooth surface and my watercolour paper is textured and off-white. Does anyone know of a heavier paper that's smooth and white?
Any ideas on how to improve it would be welcome too.
