Charles Eubanks - Explorers
I recently submitted this drawing (among others) for written feedback from an agent at the SCBWI Illustrator and Agent's Day. The agent came up with the excellent suggestion of incorporating kids into the composition, to show how it might work in a picture book. So what you see here are my initial thumbnails, followed by a full-size rough. I typically do several pages of sketches before I zero in on something that works.
Since I'm planning to make this a portfolio piece, I'm taking a bit of extra time. But I wanted to share with you guys what I'd come up with so far!
