“Fox and friends” was placed 3rd in the CYA Aspiring Illustrator Competition 2023 - the theme was DREAMLAND.
See my process below from brainstorming ideas in my sketch book through to thumbnails and colour roughs to the almost-final illustration… where the dreamy creatures looked too much like ghosts so I changed them from white to bubblegum pink!
Final illustration created on my iPad Pro in Procreate.

Drawing final lifework.
I originally had WHITE dreamy creatures, but felt they looked too ghostlike... so I changed them to a friendlier bubble gum pink!
