Picture Book Step Two: Pencil Drawings
After getting approval on the thumbnail sketches I work out the details of each illustration in pencil drawings. I scan the drawings into the computer then using Photoshop I increase the contrast and often make additional changes by moving or resizing items. Each pencil sketch is then emailed to the publisher for approval. This sketch is a two page spread in Porter Earns a Quarter. There will be text on the page and I may add a couple other items.
