Character Studies

Getting to know your character- Sherry Meidell

Here are four different studies of Amani, a character I’m working on for a book. It is interesting to play with color and values and keep notes on what you’ve discovered. I learned something from each painting and discovered a very different finished product. It was fun to play with the paint until I ended up with something I really liked.

The finished illustration was possible because of the things I learned from the previous studies.

      Hey Nancy, I’ve been doing a lot of work on the book dummy and hopefully I’m going to take it to the New York SCBWI conference for the Illustrator Portfolio Display. I would love for it to become a picture book.
