stinky underpants illustration acrylic

Things are ticking along with the illustrations for Elizabeth Austinís childrenís book, The Brotherhood of the Stinky Underpants.† I’m still in the acrylic underpainting stage… the illustration above is on its second sitting, so things are moving along well in acrylic. In this second stage of the acrylic underpainting, I’m focusing more on tightening up the details and getting everything looking “right.” The illustration in places is a little flat, but that’s because I’m going to add the ‘light’ in oils at the very end once everything is looking right in the acrylic first.

It’s very nice that you’re showing the stages. There is something so cute that those two boys are wearing the same coloured socks. How sweet.
