Children's Book Illustration

Here’s a children’s book illustration I finished recently in a new experimental style.

The sibling couple often come to visit this strange world at night in their dreams. At first they were frightened by the big hovering fish, but they’ve come to realise that they’re quite harmless. Sometimes the fish even let them ride on their backs through the most wonderful scenarios. And when they wake up in the morning, the children spend all day imagining the new peculiar places they’re going to explore with their newfound floating friends the coming night.

Below you can see a few early colour comps that helped me decide what best suited the atmosphere I wanted to convey.
