Eumundi and Friends Thanksgiving and QandA by Adorael Eumundi and Friends Thanksgiving and QandA by Adorael
Hi guys!
The Eumundi and Friends children's book that I have done the illustrations for is out on Amazon. It is free only today as a promotion here www.amazon.com/Eumundi-Friends…

If you download it please also leave a review, it would help a lot. Just a few words is fine, I'm not very eloquent myself haha :D

Find out if the turkey ends up on the plate or not ;D


Thanks for your continued support! Lately I have received quit a few questions related to art and I figured a lot of you might have had questions too so I will answer them in the comments below. What is the biggest thing that you struggle with? And what would you like to know or need a little help with? Feel free to post thumbnails or links to deviations too and I will try to answer and help :D

It really looks good. for advice, I'd add that you could play with the contrast settings, as well as your colour saturation, just to make the composition jump out. But well done!

I think the muted colours really add something, possibly an aesthetic that can't be achieved by increasing the contrast or saturation. It's all a matter of taste, of course!

The composition is exquisite my eye was circling around the centre.  I like  the interaction of the character as well as their personal individuality as well.   really like it. 

PS I have just got my self a digital pad to draw any tips for an absolute beginner.  

cheers and keep up the excellent work

Adorael Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2016   Digital Artist
I used Photoshop but chose the traditional media brushed to give it a hand drawn feel. Mostly the pencil and chalk brush that come with Photoshop.

I've thought about making my own children's book but I have the hardest time toning down the material so that it's appropriate for children ^^; I think the attempt that had the most potential was a story I made about a pelican that was bullied by other pelicans. They never let him sit on the wooden poles at the end of the dock so eventually he sulks away and meets a fisherman who gives him fish to eat. I can't really remember what else happened as it was years ago that I had the idea but this is the only picture I did for it before I gave up =v=;

I might try again in the future though :3 What tips do you have to keeping the material child-friendly but still provoking enough to be interesting/entertaining? And how long does it usually take you to plan,create, and publish a story on average?

Don't give up! It's more important to have finished something then to have made it perfect. Trust me, today's "perfect" will be tomorrow's "not good enough" anyway as you improve and notice what you could have done better.
For the Eumundi books I didn't write them so the text was already child-friendly, and it takes me about 45 hours to finish a 15-19 illustrations book. I think to keep the material child friendly as well as entertaining for adults you can use subtext and metaphors. You would be basically telling two stories, where children will not understand the more mature implications of the story. Here is an article that explains it better than I could www.bbc.com/culture/story/2014…

Thank you for the advice! I will definitely keep those things in mind next time I give it a try! ^^
That article was actually very insightful and inspiring, I think I understand what you are talking about much better thanks to it! In fact it reminded me of the deeper meanings of some children's books I remember reading as a kid~ :D
I also didn't realize that it only took you 45 hours to finish your books, that's very impressive, I was expecting you to say weeks or a month xD

In any case, I am excited to come up with a story I can use and I'll be thinking about it more later today and this week ;)
