Luggage Bear (Reisbeer)

Luggage Bear (Reisbeer) - student project

Hi Nina. I watched your storybook tutorial and have stored your tips away in my head for further use for one day in the far future. Some years ago I enthusiastically created this character, based on a real little teddy bear that I pack in my luggage for luck wherever I go. I thought it would be interesting to create a story book about my bear and his travels, but start first with him telling children about his very own home town and all it has to offer. I was planning to combine a digitally drawn bear superimposed on my own photos. Tremendously over ambitious project that is very time consuming. I got a few pages done, but then life got in the way. I have two jobs and have started a study, so have very little time to draw. I have not let the idea go yet and if I ever carry on I think I will approach it afresh with your tips in mind, especially that of the storyboard. (in case you are wondering, I am an English speaking person who lives in the Netherlands. The reason for everything being in Dutch)
