My first picture book!
Do you know how unicorns got their horns? This is my first picture book. I've been developing it for over a year and it's finally out :D Here's a bit of how I made it. 
Before starting my picture book, I did some exploration of both characters and their interaction.
I needed them to be lovable, playful and fun!
Tested a few covers before doing the final one.
Before I started painting the whole book, i did a moldboard and color script, just as you would find in a movie but for the book. I find that the more I see the book from the distance and all together, the better i can express my ideas and the mood i want throughout the book.
color test from pre production stage
Searching for textures before starting to paint
searching for a palette and more textures before doing the actual pages.
Found some very cool crayon textures!
Then I designed page by page according to my dummy illustrations done previously along the text I had written
example of what 1 spread looks like
Another spread from the book! :D
And one of my favourite spreads.
And the cover!
 Finally the book is up in stores! :D
A little preview
