Thank you for your kind words. Good luck on your children's book! With your talent, I look forward to seeing the finished work posted on here (if you're allowed to).

No trully I think you have a great voice to your work - and thank you for the compliment, though I'll admit I'm struggling with the children's book illustration - finding an appropriate voice compared to what I'm used to.

Your work is for an older age group, so that's certainly understandable. I studied animation before going to children's books so that's an easier transition.

Sometimes when I want inspiration for children's books, I'll check out the local library to see the approaches of other illustrators. I usually get ideas for my own style from odds and ends of other people. Holding the books physically and flipping through I find more helpful for processing the story than just looking at images online.

Hmm, interesting - I did my training in trad animation as well - though in fact they came to me because of the feel of my adult content. Merging the two influences has been the difficult part here. Dark but not, if that makes sense?

Good point, both on referencing other children's books material, as well as reviewing it physically. How the images interact as you flip the page and scan across is definitely important. Curious to see what you think once I post them up!
