CONCEPT ART TIME.
I'm going to just leave these 'Famous Five' preliminary development illustrations here, because, y'know, some people find them interesting, here and there. And stuff.
I did a whole load of these types of illustrations before starting the series properly, jut to try and get used to drawing the characters I designed, getting a feel for how the whole series was going to look and for getting an idea how I was going to render the book to make it look good whilst still being time efficient (I mean, each one of these books have roughly 60 full-colour illustrations in them!).
It's so weird how artwork develops over a project, these characters look so strange to me now, as I reach the end of the series... More to come this week!
