Potential Oogeley Boogeley 3 cover? EDIT



.I'm doing some test for the cover for the next Oogeley Boogeley book.
Like the last two, it'll be a long format.
This is my first test. I like the idea, but I'll keep searching..if anything, this is a fun image!

For a little while here, I'll be transitioning from sketch of the day to , I dunno.. sketch of the every two day? week?...It'll be a little bit before I get a new "routine" going, plus, I'm getting ready for comic con, and i do have quite a bit of work to do as well ... as usual

Have a GREAT Day!

Cheers.

EDIT
Thanks for the ton of email on that cover. It was just a first idea, but the more I looked at it, the less I liked the color, and Tony's comment was spot on..not right for a cover. If I want to make more of an impact, I need something more"vibrant"
here's a redesign of it..still not finished but...

Though this sketch has the all the fun qualities of your work, I don't think it works for a cover. The color choices are unique, but don't have the strength of the yellow and red on your previous cover.

Just my two bits! Keep the sketches coming as often as you can!

You're totally right Tony.
I'm realizing this now..I might reuse it for something else, but it definitely does not have the impact that I'm looking for in a cover!
Thanks for the feedback!

Trop adorable !

On pourra se le procurer au Canada ?
(ou peut être que je peux tenter un "échange" avec mes albums...)

:P

pascal said...

Pheww..OK.. I made an edit .. a different color. a little ore vibrant.
Obviously, this is still a research thingy and still needs some work. Ok.. zoo..back to real work now!

I would buy the hell out of this book :D

And I also prefer the brighter, more colourful cover.
