My first picture book!

  • Do you know how unicorns got their horns? This is my first picture book. I've been developing it for over a year and it's finally out :D Here's a bit of how I made it. 
  • Before starting my picture book, I did some exploration of both characters and their interaction.
  • I needed them to be lovable, playful and fun!
  • Tested a few covers before doing the final one.
  • Before I started painting the whole book, i did a moldboard and color script, just as you would find in a movie but for the book. I find that the more I see the book from the distance and all together, the better i can express my ideas and the mood i want throughout the book.
  • color test from pre production stage
  • Searching for textures before starting to paint
  • searching for a palette and more textures before doing the actual pages.
  • Found some very cool crayon textures!
  • Then I designed page by page according to my dummy illustrations done previously along the text I had written
  • example of what 1 spread looks like
  • Another spread from the book! :D
  • And one of my favourite spreads.
  • And the cover!
  •  Finally the book is up in stores! :D
