WHAT CHARLENE DID NEXT?, END PAPER MAYBE?

Here are some development from my drawings...
I tried to draw over my drawing on Photoshop with my mouse pad,
Just starting to have a hand-ache now.. Well I am quite happy with them actually.



Then I tried to make them into a pattern,
I thought it might be good for the end paper.





Turns out that the flower don't really go with the rest.... 

WHAT CHARLENE DID NEXT? TRYING TO GET SOME STYLE!

I took some photos from kyoto garden at Holland Park, The Garden was quite small,
not much to draw with.... Here are some roughs drawings that I did for Macmillan.

WHAT CHARLENE DID NEXT?, SOME INSPIRATIONS FOR THE MACMILLAN COMPETITION.

I chose a few books that I like and just very briefly explained what I like about them,
hopefully they could inspire me a bit ...

Reflections + Scales

Butterfly Time
Alice E. Goudey

Squeeze more details in one page.

The Animal Fair 
Alice and Martin Provensen

Again, Reflections and scales. It is a little similar to butterfly time,
but the proportions between the objects and the characters affects the image very differently. 


Limited/ framed the image

Both images from:
The Dangerous Journey
Tove Jansson
Close up

The angles and compositions of the characters have created strong visual effects.

The Witch of Hissing Hill 
Mary Calhoun

Birds-eye view
The Nock Family Circus
Celestino Piatti 

Colour Pallet

Who Will Comfort Toffle?
Tove Jansson 

Limited colours

Miss Esta Maude's Secret
W. T. Cummings

WHAT CHARLENE DID NEXT? REVEAL A BIT OF MY BOOK 'Orz'

Here are the cover and some of the pages in my book. 
It explained why I named it Orz.(last image)
From design, editing, printing and binding,for the first time, 
I feel that I have fully completed a final piece.
I know that there are bits that I could make it better,
but I am pretty happy with the finished outcome.
