Sunday Sketches (Grandpa's Lamp, Pt. 2)

Last Sunday I shared with you a preliminary sketch of Jacob and his grandfather's lamp. This week, I'm sharing with you the finalized piece. It took some time trying to decide not just what colors worked well with this clothing in this snow scene but how to best portray the lit lamp. It was a bit of a struggle but finally came to what I felt was perfect for this heart-tugging illustration, drawing the reader in to want to know more about Jacob's journey.

Please do accept my apologies for still needing to make rounds for last week's Sunday Sketches. I hope to be all caught up be the end of this evening. Happy Sunday Sketches!

  4. This is fantastic, especially the lantern! And I love the little trail of footsteps going off into the distance behind him, that's the sort of little detail that is easy to forget, but can really make an illustration great.
