RatBoy20130823_BLOGHooray for last sketch revisions!

Last Sunday I posted an earlier stage of this image as a work in progress — a tree house dwelling nine year old boy and his encounter with a giant rat.  Here is the finished version (for now) and renewed hope for a series of related illustrations.

I received some excellent feedback from Julie Rowan-Zoch in the PB Illustrators Critique Group on Facebook and revised this image to include it. The changes are the cast shadow of the doorway and darkened values for the tree trunk so it does not read as an outline.
