Short Story Illustrations
For our first project, we are going to create an illustration based off of a short story or movie.
But there is a catch!!
The illustration will need to show a different character's perspective.
For example, the story I chose was Jack and the Beanstalk so I am creating an illustration from the Giant's perspective (see sketch below)
Illustrations can be drawn traditionally OR it can be done using Illustrator.
Materials used will be entirely up to you; Pen & Ink, Watercolor, Marker, etc.
Below is another example of a sketch illustrating a Japanese Fable and the finalized pen illustration.
- Choose your favorite short story, fairy tale, movie, etc.
- Choose a character to show the story from their perspective.
** IT CANNOT BE THE MAIN CHARACTER **
- Find reference images
- Sketch your design to create an interesting composition
- Transfer your work on final copy paper
- Finalize your project with chosen materials
