Estan geniales todos, a mi me gusta el 1 como cuadro de arte y el 3 como de historieta entre el 2 y 4 el 4 por el fondo me parece que resalta mas los personajes aunque no se si desentone por el fondo diferente. Espectacular trabajo como siempre soy una gran admiradora de todo su trabajo.

That line work is gorgeous! And it's very clear! Color shapes risk blending into the background when they're not moving (which is kind of what's happening in #2; #4 works better because the background has value and texture contrast with the characters).

makes total sense. If we changed the color values on those, which one would you say works.

I could really go either way, then. I like the shapes in #2, but also the texture in #4. Maybe a middle ground with some clean edges and some textured edges, like in Samurai Jack? [link]

Hmm, I like the first one, but the third (second from the bottom) is by far the best. Interesting that many people are picking the last one, even though it's only difference to the second is the background. What if you tried the last background with the second-to-last one?

Definitely number 4. Like it was said above, the controlled, flat color shapes on the more organic background is an excellent juxtaposition and I would love to see a children's book in this style.

Really agree with everyone on the fourth one. All of them are lovely, the first beautifully painted but a little too much going on, the second, lovley background lines, but distracts from the foreground, third is stylistically amazing and beautifully done and would work well for older children, but the fourth one with that simplified background seems to work the best for me as a children's illustration. The focus is crisper and has the lovely beauty of simplicity.

Sounds good! I'm not a fan of the background, I think still needs work. Glad you like it!

these all look great, but i think the last one looks the best. not only style but the characters pop from the background; where they are curvey and in controlled lines, the background is organic and not as distracting. i really like the inks but they look a little scary for kids. hope that helps

I like the second from the bottom too - I feel like there are less and less actually drawn artwork for children's books - its all about color areas these days...

Of course the style is a lot more gripping, and suits the nordic theme better.
