Frog character design for client
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Lyn Stone | Share link:

A quirky little ‘hoppity’ frog character I designed recently for a client’s picture book. They loved the character I created. I can share this with you, as this project did not develop further.

Having chatted with the client and read the manuscript, I knew exactly how little frog (the main character) should look. He needed to be young and a bit of a day dreamer, which of course eventually leads him into trouble! These have been sketched using a rotary pencil and then digitally coloured. The actual artwork for the book may have been conventionally created, using watercolours. The digital colouring allows one to change colours quickly for a client, if needed.

The work she produces is, of course, delightful and speaks for itself; but I was also impressed with her professionalism in firstly explaining to me exactly what the process was of commissioning her, and the way she produced the work well within the time frame she had said. Throughout, she was most obliging in incorporating adjustments or re-drafts I requested, and she was always so pleasant and helpful that I felt I was dealing with a personal friend. I would have no hesitation in asking her to illustrate for me again, or in recommending her to someone else. And she's fun
