This is another black & white page for the dummy book I'm working on. It's probably too detailed for a dummy book but sometimes you just get carried away. It is good however, to work out the lighting before doing the finished painting.

Before going ahead with a complete dummy book to send off to publishers, I decided to do a single page layout for my book "Chickadee Song". I want to make sure it has a nice feel to it. I thought I would post a black and white first to show how I do my values and then follow it up with a finished coloured version Chickadee.

You live in such beauty.
You are truly free.
Dependent only on the one who made you.
I see you perched and content.
All you need is heaven sent.
I must remember, the one who made you so free,
is the one who also made me.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139: 13-16

Thank you all for your recent comments on this character I'm developing. The book is centered around a girl and a chickadee and is set in the outdoors. Adding the overalls, along with the Crocs, really gives her a more "tomboyish" appearance while still reserving a little girlishness by keeping the hair band.
