Illustrated Stories

Illustrated Stories - student project

I'm looking for a non-realistic way of illustrating stories with many characters. The stories exist already, to a certain degree, as they are from a novel I wrote and scrapped many years ago and which i want to revive in a different short form.

This is how far I got before I discovered your class today:

- must be simple and quick to draw

- combination of linework with greyscale with and without outlines (black & white only)

- charaters based on simple shapes (like a rectangular person, a heart-shaped one etc.) - I was quite surprised when I just read your blog post about A. A. Milne :D

- simple facial expressions, but expressive body language - yes, I saw your other classes: woohoo and thank you!
