I did the line-only one for Character Design Challenge on Facebook.  I Don't like gangsters and wanted something different from the 1920s Chicago type.  Then I watercoloured it and scanned for different effects.



 O RECADO (the errand)

These are some illustrations from the second commission I've recently completed for Augusto Canetas.  It was to a pretty loose brief, but Augusto was very happy with it.  I found myself, in using a combination of wet and dry watercolour pencil, exploring the medium as I went, so I am that much wiser for it.  I found myself departing from the established style with the cafe people, which, I suppose, makes for interest.  That the brief and script were both in Portuguese, and the sky, houses, lorry and butcher had to be Portuguese, made for more satisfaction in its doing.
