Copy covers for practice
This is a great idea. I'm adding it to my "to do" list.
Thanks @Pamela-Fraley! I’m learning a lot, and I think I’m getting better with my personal pieces in the monthly contests. Can’t wait to see your master copies!
@Jeremy-Ross Brilliant, great exercise!
Tribute piece for Tomie dePaola.
This one took me 9 hours from sketch to finish.
My Tribute Copy
As a Mexican American, my family celebrates Day of the Dead in honor of our lost loved ones. I painted the cover of The Art of Coco as a master copy since I absolutely love the movie and the art.
I did this master copy last night. I didn’t copy the cover exactly, but just stayed very loose. This was done in procreate with no after effect filters.
I’m proud of this study.
Continuing on with my original thread started in Nov 2019 with more master copies. These are from The Day The Crayons Quit, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers and written by Drew Daywalt. Originals on top.
@Jeremy-Ross These are really good!!
Thank you @Kevin-Longueil! I suppose this is the closest thing to asking the artist directly, “How did you make this?”
Here’s another from the amazing Cori Doerrfeld, author/illustrator of The Rabbit Listened. Such a powerful book with underlying message of coping with loss. My daughter has a lionhead rabbit as a pet and she definitely brings her comfort.

And another! Original is on top.
Here’s a quick study of Oh No! I love this book!
