Personally, I think that for my final product I wont use illustration and it takes a lot of
time and takes a lot skill to make it look good, neither of which I have. The way it is
going I think I will use digital photography, followed by rotoscoping it on Photoshop
as I think I am good at this and it wont take a lot of time as I know what I am doing.
I have decided not to create my children's book using illustrations as it would take
me a long time as I don’t find drawing the easiest thing to do and to not even
complete a small, not very detailed drawing of Ariel, it took me an hour and a half.
Although, I think illustrations would be a nice effect to a childs book but I do not
have the time or the skill to put detailed illustrations in.
I have chose to do a childrens book and the childrens book I have chosen to do is
the danish fairytale, The Little Memaid, by Hans Christian Andersen. I am going to
my graphic narrative cartoon style, I decided this after I used the comic book effect
on my two pictures of Kylie Jenner and Cara Delevigne, I decided that the this effect
wouldn’t be to extreme and wouldn’t fit in with my book. After creating my own
illustration, I decided that drawing my pictures wouldn’t be the best idea as after a
hour and a half/2 hours my drawing wasn’t even nearly finished.
I have come to the conclusion that for my pictures in my children's book, I will use
rotoscoping on Photoshop to create my pictures. I used Photoshop rotoscoping on
my picture of Kanye West and I think it works really well which is why I think I’ll use
that on my book.
I think my experiments well. I think illustration will not be suited to my work as I
explained previously due to the time and skill needed, but rotoscoping will as I am
more advanced in this I think.
I think my skill of rotoscoping is good but does have space for improvement, I can
practice this during my time creating my book.
