    More Bones

    Hey all, I have been busy with a "children's book" in the vain of the scary stories books. Any way here is the cover, which I posted awhile back, and a sampling of the 21 interior illustrations.

    Nice Erik! These are sure to be seared into the pliable minds of small children for the rest of their lives, cheers!

    Dude, this is going to scare the crap out of kids!
    Great job.

    I might've added a little warmth to the skull surrounded by the 4 candles,
    but that's a personal choice more than a criticism.

    I hope you're doing well!

    The last 2 aren't doing it as much for me as the others, less finished maybe too.
    The others are both beautiful and sending chills down my spine, brilliant work !!!!
    (bigger & bold so it doesn't disappear between my blahblah remarks)
    I agree with DS on the skull + candles remark, the brown in the other illu's add a lot of warmth and depth. The candle wax on the table is maybe also a little rough and doesn't follow the perspective of the table (but what do I now ?) ?

    Thanks everyone
    Faxtar-Thanks Matt, how are things going?

    Babbey- Thanks Tom, middle of August, I am hoping to have advance copies at comic-con for anyone who wants to check it out

    DS-Thanks Dan, these are actually going to be printed B&W. The warmth is just the underpainting, somethings are easier to do pickout. All that being said you are of course correct

    Elwell- Thanks Tristan, this was actually a dream, one I didn't know I had, come true. I loved these books when I was a kid

    REGNIRUTH-Thanks, that is one of my favorites as well

    Spookybabydoll-Can you guess the moviestar I used for ref? I hope not.

    Lotet- Thanks

    NightVision- These are going to be printed at different sizes, and the last two I believe will be very small, and you are right about the candle wax I really struggled with that, and never got it quite right.

    Really nice stuff, particularly the mermaid and the bell (I've got a thing about the unfinished painting look - top notch!). What mediums / sizes?

    edit -

    scratch that, just checked out your website, so I know they're oils (and so they should be!) - really nice site and illustrations, I've never tried maisonette, I might try and give it a go as all the americans appear to be using it?
