Copy Cat – work in progress

Copy Cat – page 1

Here’s a few pages of the children’s book I’m working on, all coloured up.  None of these pages are final colours yet, as I’m still trying to figure out how I want them to look (or rather how to get them to look like I see them in my head…)  I find colouring very challenging to do, as it’s never been one of my strong points.  I’ve spent the majority of my career animating and only worrying about the rough drawing stage, as most of what I’ve done gets passed on to someone else, who cleans it up and colours it.  One of the nice things about doing your own work is that you get to focus on everything.  One of the not so nice things about doing your own work is that you realize how little you actually know, and how many areas you suck at.  Hopefully after making a few books, I’ll start to figure things out.

    These are great, Blair. The painted backgrounds really look sharp, too. Thanks for sharing these images. Keep ’em coming!

    Hey Javier! You’re too kind:)

    Actually, I just realized that originally I uploaded CMYK files, so the colours weren’t right…. especially the greens. I changed the files to RGB so that the colours are more accurate to the actual files that I’m working on. Hopefully they look better now…. If not, I’ll have to redo everything!!!!
