Not everything makes the final cut in the book production process.
Hey everyone, Author Amy posting today...
Now, because I tend to stick writing shorter, children's fiction books, I have a fairly standard word count goal that I take into account when writing, and aim to fit my main story point into those parameters. So all in all, whilst I obviously have the story checked for spelling and grammar issues, I don't tend to need to cut out much, if any of the plot.
However, the illustrations are an entirely different manner.
I am somewhat of a perfectionist and have been known to draw the same illustrations many, many times over, because I wasn't pleased with how they came out and deemed them "not good enough" to go in to the book, so there are a lot of canned sketches that never saw the light of day again.
If the angles are wrong, or the proportions are off, if the shape of the characters head makes him look somewhat deformed, they will be redone until I am satisfied.
The images in the graphic are just a few examples of sketches that went hideously wrong lol.
