This is another character and environment study for a children’s book. I started this project like many others, with small thumbnail sketches done in pencil. Once I find a suitable composition, I make a tighter sketch either in pencil or Photoshop. I also make numerous character studies trying to convey action. While doing this, I try to think about how they might react to different situations and build a narrative around them. From there I make black & white value studies, then finally add color and build up details in Photoshop.
