Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 26)
The Frog and the Ox illustration is finished!!
Per my editor’s suggestion I arranged the stage to represent a lake in this fable. Frogs are normally close to water so I really loved the idea. I tested reflecting the trees and the 2 flowers from the background in the water but it became too busy and distracting. That’s why I decided to reflect only the lower green bed of plants. I first used the same color for the reflection but it didn’t look nice so I ended up using lighter green color.
I like the humor in this scene. These two characters together make me smile for some reason. Maybe because they’re not the typical idea of cute 🙂
This is illustration #7 so we only have one more to create! I cannot believe it! The last one is: The Dog and the Wolf.
Have a wonderful Friday !
