Taking an inspiration from Paige Keiser’s blog, I have decided to share some work in progress pictures here ( she has been sharing some pages from a dummy book where she has tried some different layouts/ coloring schemes for her book’s pages). I am starting to develop new ideas about a picture story book for my daughter and this would hopefully be a good platform to discuss the narrative and the drawing composition, aesthetics, colour palette . I am still in the draft stage of character development and haven’t finalized ‘the look’. Hopefully by the time I am through with putting this dummy together I will have a much clearer idea.
Here’s dummy page 1:
I traced and coloured my sketch digitally. first with the bright and dark colours that I usually gravitate towards and later with a muted colour scheme.
Your thoughts are welcome.
