A beginning/neurotically-fleshed-out idea for a potential poster for a desperately wished for fake movie poster. Those of you who have read PotS know the scene, and it’s one of my favorites from the books. Also I think this is one of my first attempts at drawing Tamora Pierce characters???
Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors, so naturally one of my works had to be dedicated to her majesty. While this is the most unpolished of my storyboards, I think the story flows best here without a description. But for those of you in the know, it’s the Fishpuppy scene from the first book of the Beka Cooper series, Terrier.
I like this one so much, I may even polish it up nice sometime in the future.
While I only finished five, I really enjoyed polishing everything up and giving the characters more serious appearances and expressions. Not using text was a new idea I wanted to try while I’m still fumbling with lettering, and I think it all came out really well!
The amount of work that I realize I have to complete before I go out of town makes me want to shut down and hide under my bed, so I doodled a stressed Elco to calm myself down and it didn’t work at all
I wanted to have at least five, but I need to send them in to the print shop and get them printed sooner than later. I absolutely plan on drawing out my other potential covers, but those will have to wait until later.
