Along with animated comics, I also plan to have greeting cards and children’s e-books available for people. To get some practice under my belt with doing children’s illustrations, I have started to do a storybook for Humpty Dumpty. Here are the earliest sketches I have for it, that I’ve done over the past week.
Concepts for the Title lettering:
I had made scrambled eggs earlier that day, which might be where I got the inspiration for this storybook from.
Sketch tests of the overall shape of Humpty.
I took a few of those test “blobs”, and expanded on this page. Just some different variations.
The many faces of Humpty:
I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel, just change how you view it. This is my Humpty Dumpty for the story. I saw alot of different versions of Humpty, but thought ” what if that wall was actually a river?”
I also didn’t know anything about fly fishing so it was fun to look up reference images.
