Liesel and Rudy

The Book thief written by Markus Zusak was a memorable recent read so I thought I would attempt revisiting scenes through drawing Liesel and Rudy.  Here I tried to show their friendship and young years.

Going to find something good to eat.
character development within a story.

Title cover for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

Used some strong inks here as I planned for this to be a mock title page.  Enjoyed researching details and mixing new shades with Dr Martins inks. FW inks and watercolour. The first illustration was done on bristol board very smooth and white no paper stretching was a big help. The cover above was completed on cartridge paper from a Seawhite sketchbook its  not stretched though I hear ironing on the reverse is a possibility! Thank you for looking and sharing my posts it is appreciated.
