for those helplessly addicted to picture book illustration & narrative
this is an unexpected shift in style for you. make sure you consider the situation your character is in, and it's interaction with that environment. This will determine "whole compositions" as opposed to single character drawings.
yes, i decided it was worth trying a few new things as the old stuff didnt really rock my world or anyone elses to be honest! im working a lot on my characters right now so they should come together a bit easier in the long run. ive got some great books helping me.
I think this "realization is n important and very mature reflection". I've had the same feeling for my own work - It's often related to which market audience you want to impress. What worked before for one audience, changes as you move on to another.
