Here is the new brief for my second assignment-Mirror Mirror On The Wall
We are required to do a children illustration story book with some few scene.
I’m decided to do “Red riding hood” as my story instead of “Hansel and Gretel”.My target audience will be for children around 3 to 5 years old.
Analyze the story with the setup, confrontation and resolution.
I had done some research of different types of the little red riding hood. Explored about the technique of the illustrator using and the way they present their artwork. (Digital collage, illustrations, drawing or painting form, etc…) I mainly focus on the baby and kid type red riding hood because of my target audience.
Illustrator & designer:
Eun Joo Lee:
-a korean children illustrator.
a Barcelona children illustrator. She also considered one of my favourite illustrator.
I love this illustrator as well, her artwork always impressed me with mix media and collage.
The most success book created by her.- The Onion Great Escape
-Most favourite illustrator. His artwork always impressed me and contain concept surrealism. His artwork contain visual texture, collage and mix media. Strong visual texture in his artwork. I like the way he draw the character and the small details on it including the cutout.
some research of the collage made character:
little red riding hood
-some character design based on my research and inspired by my favourite illustrator.
I had draw the wolf before and after he eating little red and grandma. including the outfit.
Concept & Idea:
My six scene of the story card will put it in the boxes and the boxes might be a packaging of the storybook. Some decorations may added into the boxes. The boxes will look like a parcel and some polka dots adding at the side.
Sketches & Scene:
Little red’s costume:
-I had try out with different material of the hoodie of little red. Example: newspaper, lino ink, crepe paper and etc. I decided to paint the hoodie digitally to show the “redness” of the little red’s hoodie. Additional with the paper dolley around the head of the little red.
I wan my artwork contain handmade collage mix with digital collage. For me, painting the face of the character will be a little bit normal. From my research, some of the character was collage made. So I wanted to personalized my character by exploring different material of the face.
Try out with wrapping paper, magazine cutout paper, texture paper.
Try out with wolf as well.
Character with different perspective and view:
-Front -Quarter -Side -Back
