I thought I was finished, but David (book designer at Familius) and I skyped yesterday and discussed the book cover jacket. We decided it would be nice to have an additional illustration for the back side. But the deadline to send the book to the printers is SOON (Tuesday) so I got right to work!
First the drawing:
My trusty fb friends helped me figure out he looks like he's laying ON TOP of the water instead of IN it.
One friend even posted this photo to help:
So I shrunk his belly down...
But it still wasn't enough. Nope.
Finally a success!!
I also took out the dark lines between him and the water and that helped a ton! Now, he is in the water. :)
Behold, the back side of the book cover!
Once my book designer David at Familius approves, he'll put it all together, and the book will be sent to the printers next week!!!
