snowmen - the book!

Sam ready to go out in the snow, illustration in pencil, watercolour, coloured pencil and with a digital border.

I've been working on the illustrations for the book for Sam for Christmas. I had to wait an hour at hospital yesterday and made a start on the line drawings, adding some more this morning and adding colour this afternoon, after scanning them (in case I made a pigs ear of them when adding the colour :>) ).

and watercolour + coloured pencil + digital border - ready to add to book

Their cat weaves in and out of the action throughout.

Now I have to start assembling them and brushing up on the storyline in Publisher. After this I may get the current painting finished - I hope.

c&c welcome :>) and any advice

I love the snowman book idea! What a great way to use your waiting time too. The felt board is brilliant also. Lucky grandson!
