Little Angel - Illustration and Layout
Little Angel is a children's book with a Christmas theme. The original illustrator created rough sketches, but was unable to continue. I was asked to join on and complete the project. My part was to turn the rough sketches into final imagery, but I also was asked to do the page layout for printing. We finished it just in time for the Christmas season.
I started out by bringing the original sketches into Adobe Draw on the iPad. I added basic color and outlines there. Shading was added in Photoshop. I created my watercolor backgrounds in Adobe Sketch, on the iPad, and then integrated into the Photoshop file.
A couple sketches wouldn't work for the project. The image below is one of two I needed to create from scratch. The process was essentially the same as the others.
Here's the initial sketch and most of the progression.
Final layout for the book was completed in InDesign. Here's the cover.
