|The dog is now in colour and ready to animate.|
Here is the dog in Photoshop, ready to be made into a series of frames for the animation.
I feel I should give the dog a name... hmmm... Patch? Spot? Or something christmassy like Pudding or Holly?

|Linework for the first frame|
So now I am working on the character and creating the linework for the frames. I think I like this little dog, the next stage is to see how he looks in colour.
The animation should be finished by the end of the week.

|Pencil drawing by Amanda Lillywhite|
The drawings were done on paper in a mixture of HB and 6B pencils. The linework was then altered to the Pantone blue the client required in Photoshop.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being a freelance illustrator, in my experience, is the variety of the work. Risk management is a new topic for me!
The illustration for the cover of Evgueni Ivantsov's book Heads or Tails combined pencil drawing, digital colour, vector based illustration (the scales) plus coin artwork downloaded from the US mint website. All elements were combined together using a bit of Photoshop magic.
