Here's a colour draft for my "Eight steps to achieving diabetes control! Some of the colours need re-working; The grass is a little bit too sickly yellow at the moment, and I want to show a more healthy atmosphere, rather than an ill one. It's for a diabetes booklet after all!
But other than that, I think it's pretty good anyhow, even though I didn't put shadows under any of the characters. I left them out because they seemed to overcrowd the picture, but maybe they do need to go in to add some grounding? mmm...

Fuzzy eyes...

Here are some new Illustrations that are going to be used (or so they tell me!) on the University of Plymouth website, in a guide for prospective students about how to approach the interview process.

There's six Illustrations in all, but the captions for these ones are...
"Ask your tutor for their opinion on your portfolio."
"Avoid stress."
"Take photographs of large work."

I haven't coloured anything for ages since finishing Uni, but I think I'm starting to win the battle against colour! I'm really happy with these. However since I've had a bit of a break from colouring, staring at a computer screen all days has given me a major headache! I need to build up my tolerance again.

(Also, I swear saving as JPEG makes these look worse.)
