I’ve got to the point where I am working to get each page of my stories to a finished and presentable stage, and this has involved experiments with composition and having a bit of fun with Photoshop filters.
For some aspects in particular, such as: fish tanks, reptile tanks and Santa in the chimney, I felt that the lighting effects could look interesting.
Here are some examples of how the page layouts are coming along…
There is still quite a lot to do, including the deciding of what size the pages should be and how the text should appear alongside the images. A lot of the ideas above are of A4 size, but it may be that the imagery works better without so much empty space surrounding it. I am always open to any suggestions or requests, so please feel welcome to get in touch or leave a comment. Of course I shall continue to post up developments as they come along.
I believe I might have promised a peek at some of my craft work on my last post, so here you go…
Above we have crochet with some nice little embellishments sewn on and some bought hair accessories accompanied by embellishments and super glue. All good fun when working alongside a radio blaring some cheesy 80s and Christmas tunes. I love them, but do I sell? Hmm.
