She was surprised, as she walked along, to see how pretty the country was about her.  There were neat fences at the sides of the road, painted a dainty blue color, and beyond them were fields of grain and vegetables in abundance.  Evidently the Munchkins were good farmers and able to raise large crops.
Opening page for Chapter 3! This took a long time. Munchkins are all about the color blue and their buildings all have domes. In the back of my head I’m working out how to construct all of the different settings to look distinct, because there isn’t much textual description to go on. The text first gives the impression of Munchkinland being bright and charming and rural, so that is my priority for these first few pictures.
The chapter 4 illo is inked and I should be able to get it up in about a week. My goal is to get one of these done every week, so the whole book will be done inside half a year.
