CalemIllustratioon by Black85 CalemIllustratioon by Black85
Here is an illustration I've been working on for a book written by a 15 years old girl.

I am not a big fan of over rendered illustrations, but I guess I had to do it. I feel it betrays my lack of experience. A good illustrator/painter/drawer would show confidence in every stoke, making the work more spontaneous and simplified with less details. A good composition and color harmony can't be replaced by visible hair on the skin or textured fabric on the clothes.

Anyway, I hope you like it.

This is wonderful.
I really like the bLue eyed Girl, she's sp pretty and looks very curious to her surrounding area.

Wow a Book, written by a 15year old? That's cool! What is it all about?

I know an editor who promoted the book and asked me to draw the cover illustration!!

It is a fantasy book called Callem Ksire.

moi je trouve que ça se tient. quelques erreurs d'anatomie comme dit plus haut mais généralement ça rend bien.
j'aime beaucoup. ^^

Le style de dessin n'était pas supposé être prêté à un rendu réaliste, ce qui rend les exagérations et délibérations anatomiques un peu inadéquoites effectivement. Au dé;part, je voulais quelque chose de beaucoup plus en applat. Mais coudonc, le client voulait plus de détails et encore plus de détails... Merci :)

J'trouve pas ça overrendered. Ça fait roman fantastique. Y a quelques petites erreurs d'anatomie (notamment la fille qui tient le livre, elle a le tronc tellement court), mais c'est pas grand-chose selon moi. Très cool je trouve!

Ben j'aime bien pour le décor, mais c'est vrai que pour les personnages ça fait un peu trop, quoique je crois que si tu simplifies juste les visages ça irait beaucoup mieux.
