Exploring the low tide!

Been doing some editorial illustrations for a fictional magazine at school! I chose an activity magazine for children! And its taking place by the Low tide areas!
This is the first label! Featuring the hermit house collecting the many cool things that the low tide leaves behind!

The second label!
Where there´s a hot dog stand! But the hot dogs are replaced with marine sea cucumbers! This makes a lot more sense in norway...since "sea cucumber" actually means sea "sausage" in Norway!

The third label! This is captain Crabbeard! a menacing crab pirate lord that spreads havoc upon the poor starfish that try to fend him off! A mermaid calls the horn of the sea! Is she summoning Crabbeard or alerting enforcements? you figure it out!

All the illustrations are done in traditional watercolors! But i also used some ecoline ink! which has the same effect as watercolors! and white gouache to bring forth details and highlights!
