The Tortoise and the Hare by Katmomma The Tortoise and the Hare by Katmomma
UPDATED FOR SECOND EDITION 2012 PUBLICATION
BOOK AVAILABLE NOW !! --> [link]



Final Book Cover for what has been known as "Jack Hare's Story"
To be continued with literature and illustration by yours truly.

:star: All Tortoise & Hare stuff can be found here--> [link]


Again I want to thank everyone so much for all of the wonderful and helpful feedback through the Work in Progress. This was put in color tonight during a livestream session and I also want to thank the folks that hung out to watch :hug:

There are still things that may be fixed and changed with this, but for the most part, it's done.

The composition is supposed to flow in a backwards "C", The emphasis does jump to Tortoise first but with respect to the title having him mentioned first....it makes sense. Jack is still a very prominent figure in the balance and exposes his charm & attitude with his confident smile.

Having too much atmosphere really just made things messy. That's why I've kept it more simple and clean.

Positively love the final cover. It looks fantastic. My husband says he adores your coloring/shading. I think it looks quite nice as well.

Once again, congratulations on finishing up! :D

I really love it, but I suggest that the printed version (if there is one) would have a worn yellow tone for background, much like an old paper or book! I love it either ways :D
