Wolf Song Drawing Test

I am now to posting some of the drawing tests I am working on for the book Wolf Song. Here is a quick sketch of the Wolf and Girl which I will also do a rough painting for color and mood. If you are interested in reading the story  (which is very much in-progress) you can go to my pages section and click on Wolf Song.

Wolf Song

I am in the throws of creating a new picture book called Wolf Song. I re-told a Native American folk tale about a lonesome wolf. Since it is a picture book I kept the story to about 1,100 words and there is some wiggle room to edit down to 1000 words (the high end of picture book copy.) I am now creating art for the story. When the dummy and some finished paintings are done I plan on sending it out to editors.
People often ask me how do I make a storybook dummy so I decided as the process goes along I will post my progress.
1. Story done.
2. Next thing to do are the book thumbnails.
