Characters & Art
In the beginning, I sketched images with pencils as detailed as possible, and painted different ranges of color: pink, green, blue, brown, and red, in my sketchbook. I added a lot of water enabling colors to blend with each other in the pigments. I transferred colors from my sketchbook with Clone Stamp Tool in Photoshop. The result turned out great. The blending color made the whole storybook look fantastic.
I tried to print the storybook in a Chinese scroll. It was an important thing to connect each scene smoothly. I picked the red scarf as an element of connection between each scene.
