Illustrations: "The Young Dinosaur of Red Rock Canyon" (working title) - Various Illustrations of Desert Animals and Dinosaurs for Children's Book
About four months ago I was commissioned to be the illustrator for a Children's Book about a Dinosaur that comes to life from fossilized eggs at modern day Red Rock Canyon, a conservation area just outside of Las Vegas. The author needed about 20 full page illustrations for the book. I have been compositing 2d Illustrations with photo's and matte paintings of Red Rock to give the illustrations a fun, unique direction that still showcases the natural beauty of the Conservation Area. Below are collages of the original line drawings as well as the Photoshop painted renditions of selected characters from the book. We are about half-way through the illustrations at this point and actively seeking out publishers for the project. I will be posting some finished illustrations in the upcoming weeks but for now I wanted to give everyone a taste of what I have been working on. Enjoy!
