Here is the development drawings for my version of Momotaro.

Momotaro is one of my favorite Japanese stories.

Hello Again. Here are the four freestyle concepts. Many of the concepts were simple bits of ideas floating around in my head.

Road to Magic (Countdown 1)

This weeks focus is on Color Thumbnails. The idea is to have one image of each story in full color as an eye catcher, and show that I do something other than black and white compositions.

For Momotaro I went between watercolor studies and those painted on the computer. Both styles have a different look but I think that I will try a slight combination between the two. I want to do two color pieces that shows the valley where the oni live which is dark and moody. Then the clean and beautiful valley after Momotaro's victory.

Little Red is a dark tale, so I want a dark and slightly menacing background with a hint of light which is where the heroine would stand.

Le Mort d'Arthur I want a straightforward composition of Camelot Castle interior.

Well this is the end of the countdown. Next week I will try to put the final touches on this project and I won't post anything. But in two weeks I will start posting the final versions of the three stories and the freestyles. Here's the breakdown...

Next week: No post
2 weeks: four Freestyle images
3 weeks: Final five artwork for Momotaro
4 Weeks: Final five artwork for Little Red
5 Weeks: Final five artwork for Le Mort d'Arthur

Take Care all
