Hilda adding color

Hideaway Hilda cover     Why does life always seem to get in the way of having a little fun?

Anyway, here I’ve refined my drawing.  Taking out the things that weren’t working and adding more to tell the story .I’ve then taken the drawing and scanned it into the computer. Using Photoshop, I’ve traced over the line drawing on a separate layer. Then I added the start of the background on the layer behind the traced layer. My next step was to block in the colors making sure I make a swatch of that color for future use within the books other characters.

Next I’ll be adding some shading and texture to give Hilda some depth.

Until next week.

Have an artful time!
