Considering the deadline I have and the work output I've managed to make in the time I've actually had time to put my head around this project, I don't think I'll be able to finish this book for this unit. I'll have to change to a photography style if I want to keep the deadline and my hair, because this project is not giving me any room to move and do my other 3 units-worth of homework. I hope I'll be able to change, seeing as I don't have much time to finish this, but I really, really need to change this. I'm just falling behind because I'm concentrating on one thing and spending the rest of the time stressing and procrastinating because of the work load. But here's the work I've done, which isn't much.
I just felt I needed to change once I realised I had spent 4 hours on a Big Ben drawing for a book set in 1840...

Never knew I could draw mountains, never knew I could draw water. Now I'm going to see if I can learn to draw clouds and a nicely gradient-ed sky. Really impressed with myself so far!
And is searching for the illustrators of the cover via twitter's #TobuscusBook hashtag. This is me joining in - thought I'd upload the pics here as well. Toby's face sketches were done at the start of this year, and the tentacles with the mountains are for the cover of the book I'm making for Publication design. I don't know if this sort of sketchy drawing is what Toby fancies, but I hope he at least gets to look at them... //fingers crossed for my first illustration commission
