Illustration Styles with LarsER Arts

I got asked to show different styles for Children's book (or other Illustration samples) quotes  so I decided to set up a blog post showing different styles. Starting with the more simple to the more complex.

#1 More simplified sketchy line work 

2) A style that is sketchy and a middle tone value added usually with one color.

3) This style is a more realistic full value 

3) This style is a sketchy style with color added:


4) More high detailed painting style, in digital:

Baseball coach Caricature

I had a repeat job from a client I did of a base ball player where he was wearing a double hat ( I tried to find it but could not find it) It is fun to working on high quality water color paper, and really like how I am able to achieve really effective values and textures.
This week I have a Trade show at the Tampa Bay Convention center for DST output. Will share more soon! Good night

Illustration and weekend events

Here is a Sarah Palin Illustration along with her trophies: Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul that she politically supports. The Illustration was suppose to be used for May cover, but will now be used in a later date in The American Spectator Magazine, because they changed ideas last minute with another vision the writer had. I was told that the rest of the office all loved it. I am disappointed it wasn't published, but that's ok they will use me again :)
God is Great, and I know he will continue to bless me!
