Skateboarding Interiors

I finally completed the inks for the interior of the kids book on skateboarding.

It's been a busy couple of weeks and, unlike the last bunch of kids books I've done, the schedule for this round of four books feels a bit chaotic. Usually I'll read one book, do thumbnails for it, pencil it, ink it, finish it up, and then move onto the next one. Because the schedule for these four books is so tight and because I sometimes find myself waiting up to four or five days for approval to continue onto the next step of work, I find myself penciling one book while trying to ink another while trying to read and do thumbnails for a third all at the same time.

Like I said, it's been chaotic and more than a bit exhausting but, so far, I've been doing a good job of keeping up and getting stuff done. I just try and do as much as I can each day and it seems to be working.

So, at least the first book is all inked and ready to be scanned into the computer, touched up, and gray toned.

Maybe I'll get these books done on time after all.

Without any flattery, this is beautiful !I love the points of view, and the way you focus the reader's eye with the balance between black and white spaces ^^ And the compo too... well, there're a lot of things to learn from this, very nice job, indeed !
