Mary had a little lamb

Mary had a little lamb - student project

Hello!

In Mary Kate's first class I chose the phrase 'Mary had a little lamb'. You can see my project here:

Here's my final sketch:

For inspiration I chose some Victorian children books and posters:

Mary had a little lamb - image 2 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 3 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 4 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 5 - student project

I like the combination of green, crimson or burgundy  and beige or golden.

Then I made a sketch with colored pencils:

After I'd digitized the black and white image I colored it partly in Illustrator and partly in Photoshop. I used the same pallette as in the sketch but changed a lot:

After that I made some textures with pencils, ink and markers:

Mary had a little lamb - image 8 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 9 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 10 - student project

Mary had a little lamb - image 11 - student project

I didn't use all of them.

Here is my final variant with digital color and textures:
