The initial design for the main character, "Girl" of my new children's book I am working on. Set in Poland, a young American girl is left with her Polish Babcia (grandmother) for the summer. Unable to understand each other, they don't get off to a very good start. With each passing day, a bond soon forms and grows into something special, proving love can transcend all barriers, even language.
I am currently fleshing out the story outline. It's been a lot of fun. Kind of storyboarding it at the moment. After watching a few Schoolism interviews (highly recommend), Bobby Chui spoke with character designers Chris Sasaki and Shiyoon Kim, I was inspired and this is what I came up with.
This is only the beginning. any comment on how you think I can improve the design would be really cool, so let me hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by!
