BMX Bike Ride

Here is the third cover I did for the new series of four kids books.

Like the skateboard and hockey pieces before it, I drew the figure in the traditional ways and used a manipulated photo for the background.

This is one I definitely would have done a little more to if I thought it was worth the time. Maybe adding a little more toothbrush splatter or texture on the piece overall to make it more a piece of art.

But, I was happy enough to hand this piece over to my art director to play around with it as he saw fit.

I can't wait to see how the finished cover turns out.

Cool, the backgrounds are working well.

I'm liking the backgrounds too, guys. I might need to use it in future pieces. I'll have to see. But it does work well and I'm glad I learned how to do it.
