Children's book cover Part 2

Above is the latest work-in-prog of the cover. I've already made some changes with help from other artists comments. Thanks guys!!

Older idea

Right now I'm not too happy with the work I've done on these two cover comps. So I wanted to post these up if anybody out there wanted to give some honest feedback on how to make this idea better. Any suggestions? I enjoy good hard critiques so I'm very open to hear any feedback about what I can change. Hey! give me a better idea for this and I'll let you name our firstborn....uh, well, maybe I won't go that far.

The more I think about it, I hope we (as artists) can start using blogger for critiquing and less for ego boosting. It's sometimes painful for folks you don't really know to rip on your little masterpiece, but learning what you're doing wrong is a great way to improve your skills. So lemme have it! No pats on the back!!

This book is a product of Immedium. Written by master storyteller, Oliver Chin.

I've been DRAWN!

My work was just posted on THE biggest drawing blog on the face of the planet!! DRAWN! Just seeing my work appear on a website that thousands of artists visit everyday for inspiration is a very humbling experience for me. (but not humbling enough to not tell you about! haha!) Drawn! was just recently named one of the "“50 Coolest Websites of 2006" by TIME Magazine. So congrats and thanks again to the contributors for generating such a great source of inspiration on the web!


Also, special thanks to Jared Chapman for the undeserved attention. If you haven't already check out Jared's little crockpot and prepare to link his site to yours!
