Hi, I'm a year twelve student in Tasmania. I was stuck for an idea for my year long Graphic Design Project until I came across the illustrations of Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Warwick Goble....etc etc. Now I am obsessed with producing a set of illustrated fairytales.
These are some preliminary character sketches for The Little Mermaid
They're kind of embarrassing but I want to get this sketchbook started.

Not sure what happened to the attachments in the last one, but I fixed them now.
Started playing around with watercolours.
Her only consolation was to sit in her little garden with her arms twined around the handsome marble statue which reminded her of the prince. (Hans Christian Andersen)
The scanner washed this out a bit but even so, I think it needs darker shadows so the statue contrasts a bit more. The tree is really not convincing. If I were to redo this the composition would be completely different, I love the way the sand turned out, although you can't really see it in the scan. I still haven't achieved the look I want for the mermaid.
looking good a year twelve student means that u are how old? Ive always loved fairytales, got any more character sketches please post em
Thanks for your comments!
PaintMyBrain- year twelve means I'm 18. Last year of highschool, eek =S
raminafshari- yeah, I get told to do more men alot, must put it into action.
Some works in progress, border illustrations and digital scribble.
nice update okey ur 18. sorry the school terms in English is not my best knowledge hehe. sweet character illustrations. I really like the simplicity in the last one, not that many lines and details but it really shows feelings somehow. Great work.
Thanks for your comment ^.^
Some planning for Hansel and Gretel although I suppose others won't be able to make much sense out of it.
And then a bunch of different faces.
keep on going
Some things from my pile of papers.
Thanks for your comment Mark!
Today I tried to do a painting of the view from my back step- except I took out some trees. The mountain is Mount Wellington.
i love the mermaids and ur latest face drawings, really nice start
Thankyou Jesus Food.
My hand. A bit wobbly because I was on the bus.
Today I did the first few exercises in Rendering in Pen and Ink by Arthur Guptill. I found horizontal lines the hardest and downwards diagonal the easiest allthough consistency was the problem overall. Next I think I will dig up some smoother paper to try out.
Nice start mate, I lika those studies, they'ro not pro, but anyways they're pretty nice, I'm not a master but front my point of view, keep atacking those anatomy studies, It's something that you will use always (specially if you specialize on character design). Cheers!
