Cress Digital Character Design

Character three from The Lunar Chronicles is Cress from the third book of the same name. She’s based on Rapunzel if you couldn’t guess from all the hair!
Like the others I digitally colour pencil sketches from a few years ago on Procreate.

Life Drawing 18/07/19

I managed to go to life drawing class last week but completely forgot to post these drawings from a session I attended last summer!
I forgot my regular blue pencil in this session so I just used a regular pencil instead. I remember spending quite a lot of time drawing the faces on these ones so I didn’t actually finish the drawings, however I’m really happy with the faces and quite like the unfinished look to them.

Umbo Goes to Welsh Class Pencil Drawings

Here are the pencil illustrations that accompanied the full colour ones in the final book design. Once I had finished all the illustrations, I created a book on Blurb so that me and the author Caroline Jackson could have printed copies.

I’ve worked on blurb before so was quite used to the format and fairly soon I had created a nice book to wrap up the project. Hopefully one day it will be a book available to all!

This project was a commission from the author and there are no publication planes at this time, however who knows what will happen in the future!
I shall keep you updated but for now I hope you enjoy these illustrations and the characters. This project was a lot of fun for me to work on and I hope to revisit Umbo again one day.
