Character Development – Squirreled Away

These pieces were created for a portfolio building course I took with Make Art That Sells which ran for 5 weeks during February and March. We were given three manuscripts to choose from, for which we would develop our main character, secondary characters, one full colour spread, and a cover design. Below are my pieces for the various stages.

First character sketches
First colour version and proposed colour palette
Revised palette and final character
Character development – facial expressions
Finished spread, including text by Zoe Tucker
Cover ideas – teal
Edited cover – white to show the snowy forest
