NJSCBWI Assignment- Finished?

I think I’m finished with my assignment.  After deciding what Sally Gal might look like, the most difficult part was to focus on which emotion to portray on this little girl’s face, since this character feels many things in this scene. I’ve included character sketches of Sally Gal’s subtly of mood and her cousin Wild Cat’s winning ways.

On a scale of one to ten, I feel this spot illustration rates about a seven and a half on the “feel- ok- about -it meter”.  The painting is digital, so if this were a “real” assignment, I could make changes easily if asked.  For instance, the ribbon on the left could be resized or eliminated with a click.  Of course, text fills the left hand side of the page and wraps to the top of the page on the right.  Here, I’ve included a light blue gutter for orientation purposes. I’ve provided a full one quarter inch bleed all round in the final piece.

I’m looking forward to the feedback, because this workshop is about learning. Really looking forward to sharing my portfolio and meeting the art directors.  Interested to spend time and speak with other illustrators.  But, there are so many images floating around in my head, that it is time to move on to the next project…had a dream about a blue squid-like patterned creature that replicates children…
