Ooook whew here I go ....
Some time ago I decided to make an illustrated version of a kids novel from my childhood, for my PF. This was supposed to be easy and fun. But just because it is one of my favourite novels, I went from being super excited to being frustrated and getting stuck I should have expected this. I would love some thoughts on where this is going :))
1930s. Main character is a boy, described with long messy hair, strong and always with wripped clothes and dirty. He was banished from home because he only does bad things. I have been told in my design he looks like a girl. What do you think? Any ideas on how to make boys look more boyish, but not manly?
The other character is a devilish creature, that his father banished from home because he can not do bad. They become friends. The creature is athletic and always hopping around. I used this to show that they are basically opposites. This here is the scene where they meet.
The raven is also a character.
Any feedback and suggestions are very welcome and appreciated.
