If you haven't already realized that I'm painting the illustrations for this book all out of order, this one should give it away. I finished "Crow Carries The Light" a couple of weeks ago, but this illustration I just finished comes a little earlier in the story. This is the moment when Crow steals the light from a pair of chubby baby hands. I know, I know, stealing balls of daylight from little babies is generally frowned upon. But Crow had good intentions. Or mischievous intentions. Or maybe a little of both.
The basic shapes.
Glueing them down...
All glued down, ready for details!
Highlighting the hands...
And starting to bring out the shape of Crow's wings.
