Process of a Fairy Tale pt1.

Ok, so I'm working on the "Grimm's Fairy Tale" challenge over at The Art Order. I've chosen the story "The Seven Ravens", here are my initial drawings.

I started with thumbnails to work out what in the story I wanted to illustrate.

From there, I did a series of roughs, working through the composition a bit.


Then I did this very loose watercolour sketch...


After the sketch, I realized the composition would be better with the girl larger, so I did one more rough...

Finally, I played around with some ideas for the girl and the 7 ravens.


More to come....
