SEVENTH ILLUSTRATION COMMENCES!!!

A few days ago, the creation of the seventh illustration of my dinosaur book has begun. This will be the first herbivore illustration to be made. It will feature my fictional species of ceratopsian or horned dinosaur. While this animal will have similarities to the real life ceratopsians, it will have a number of notable differences as well. Not only will this beast have its own illustration, but it will also be featured in the cover illustration. I look forward to seeing this critter in the flesh.

SIXTH ILLUSTRATION COMPLETE!!!

My illustrator has completed the sixth illustration for my dinosaur book. This is the smallest species of dinosaur in the entire series. It is also the very first species of reverse engineered dinosaur to be created in my story’s universe. It’s name translates as “New Lizard”.

SIXTH ILLUSTRATION (FIRST DRAFT)

A few days ago, I received the first draft of the sixth illustration for my dinosaur book. It features an animal that is not only the smallest predator in the story, but also the smallest species of dinosaur in the entire series. This creature is also the first species of reverse engineered dinosaur to be created in my story’s universe. I am amazed at my illustrator’s ability to flawlessly give my imagination physical form. So far, I would say that my collaboration with my illustrator has been a perfect match for me. I look forward to seeing the rest of my illustrations when our collaboration is over.

FIFTH ILLUSTRATION (FIRST DRAFT)

My illustrator has done the first draft of the fifth illustration for my dinosaur book. It features the medium-sized predator of the manmade ecosystem. I envisioned it to be a mixture between a Carnotaurus, Dilophosaurus, and Baryonyx. My illustrator has done a great job giving my imagination physical form. It looks great and I look forward to seeing the final draft. I will keep you updated on any further developments.

NEW DINOSAUR COVER IDEA

For some time, I have been wondering what the sixteenth and final illustration should be for my dinosaur book. At first, I thought of including an additional picture to add to the interior. However, I am thinking of having the final illustration be the cover of the book. To give it the feel of an epic dinosaur book, I am thinking of having the cover depict a battle between two dinosaurs. I am thinking of having this dinosaur battle mirror the famous rivalry between Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops. However, this battle will feature the apex predator of the story going toe-to-toe with my fictional species of ceratopsian.

FOURTH ILLUSTRATION: FIRST DRAFT

I received the first draft of my fourth illustration today and it is looking good. In fact, it fit what I was visualizing so well that my illustrator does not need to make any modifications this time. After seeing this reverse engineered crocodilian in the flesh, I am pleased that it is not around the swim in the world’s waters. I look forward to seeing the final draft, which will feature how big this beast is compared to an average sized human. I will keep you updated on any further developments.

THREE BOOKS AT ONCE!!!

Currently, three of the illustrations for my dinosaur book are complete and there are thirteen more to go. At this rate, I estimate they will all be done in a matter of months. Fortunately, while my illustrator is hard at work, I have other projects to occupy myself with. I am currently working on three books at the same time. One book is my second dinosaur book, one is my second superhero book, and one is my third fantasy book. I have been dedicating roughly one and a half hours a day on each one. So far, I have reached about twenty pages in each book and counting. Who knows? If I keep this up, I may have more than one book ready for publication by the end of the year or shortly into next year. It has been a fun and engaging process and it has kept me busy while my illustrator works. I will keep you updated on any further developments.

MY ILLUSTRATION THOUGHTS

As my illustrations for my dinosaur series are being made, I am left in a very intriguing state. Since my writing career started, I always wanted to have my books illustrated. After countless failed attempts, I am finally in the process of having this particular wish become a reality. The creation of my illustrations is significant to me on a personal level because my readers will not only envision my imagination through my writing, but they will also see my imagination take physical form through my illustrations. These particular illustrations are special on a personal level because they are depicting dinosaurs, which I have been a fan of since the day I was born. With things going so swimmingly with my illustrator, I am thinking of having illustrations done with my future books in the days ahead.
