My very unfinished background plus the layouts of my first and second scenes. From the fairy tale The 12 Dancing Princesses.
In the first scene the princesses are walking through the forest, and one of them is alarmed by a sound she hears.
In the second scene we see the invisiblity-cloaked man who is following them break off a twig.


  1. Your color palette has changed since I first saw this piece. And I like what happened way better. Keep working on flushing out your figures, but don't go overboard as we tend to do. We may not be able to get the whole story from your piece, but that's ok. We only want a glimpse :) Keep it up girl! Looks great so far.

  2. I'm not surprised you didn't finish, it looks like a ton of work! But I think it's worth it -- I love how you decided to render the trees, how creative and interpreted and alive they are. The characters are interesting, too.
    Last week you were saying something about I think diamonds or something else sparkly that was supposed to be in the trees.. I hope you're still going to add those, I'm excited to see how you deal with that!

  3. I really like the style that you are using for this piece a lot. It's very interesting and appealing to look at. I also think that your color palette adds a lot to this style with it stark simplicity. I think your character designs look great as well and they look like they will fit in with the backgrounds.

  4. I am really enjoying your stylized trees.

  5. I'm really happy you got a chance to post this! I know it's not done, but it's great to see your progress, and your process for how you would finish it. I like that we're entering the scene from the back - and following them through the center and into the distance. I think this could be a great way to finish up the story - showing you characters following that sequence! I would love to see how you do their outfits, it seems like a great place to really play with color and the moon-lit sky! I think you could also play with color variation ever so slightly but still make it a limited color palette- like everything is hit by the moon, and still very cool tones, but that there might be differences in the types of cool colors!

    Also! I wanted to say thanks for an amazing semester! This really was the best class ever and I had SO much fun meeting you guys and seeing what you make. I really hope you have the chance to keep going with digital - You made some beautiful patterns in our Illustrator group, too - that would be a great place to keep going! I hope you have an amazing and non-stressful summer. Thanks for everything and I hope I get to see you soon!
