Finished Children's Story

I finally finished my story. I am so excited about how it turned out. I just finished it a few minutes ago. I think that I am going to wait a few hours before rereading it so that my mind is fresh. I am going to let a few of my friends read it to help me find any mistakes that I haven't noticed. They have been waiting all week for me to finally finish it so they are almost as excited as I am. This story is my baby so I am only letting a select few read it.

Color Keys

I finished the keys last night. I am not sure which one I am going to pick yet. I kind of like the one that is at night and the one at sunset. The day one is king of boring. It doesn't have enough contrast. The sunset one doesn't either but at least it has some interesting colors.

Ready for Color Keys

I revised this drawing from the thumbnail sketch. I think it looks much better now. You can actually tell what is going on in the tower now. I am going to do color keys for it later on today. Right now I am still in the process of inking the other Rapunzel illustration. I want to finish it by the end of the day.

Inking Time

Well, I made changes to the thumbnail and redefined the drawing more. I am feel better about this one now. This is the one that I am choosing to ink. I think that it should look good inked. I might crop it a little more later after it is inked. I am starting to see it come together and I am getting excited about how it will turn out.

Rapunzel Project

Here is my Rapunzel thumbnail sketches. They are very rough in these sketches because I was working pretty small. I picked out two of the best of these and now I have been tightening them up and changing them around to make them better. One of them I am going to ink and leave it in black and white. The other one that I picked is going to be tightly redrawn and digitally painted.

One Of My Favorites...

I am basing a children's story book that I am writing on this digital painting that I created. I don't know why I chose to use this one instead of one of my other illustrations other than the fact that it is colorful and gives me a very interesting place to set the story in. I am almost done with writing the story. I put the writing on hold for now though because I have another project that I am working on. I will post the progression of my latest project soon.
