  5. 5. Evaluation What did you like about your image? I liked using the gradient tool for the humming bird’s body and for my background. I used the gradient tool both to overlay two colours and also to get a gradual darker to lighter effect, which I find attractive and pleasing. I used pastel shades of colours that are opposites on the colour wheel so they contrast but are still calming. What would you improve if you did it again? I would have enlarged the hibiscus’s petals and maybe if I had more time, put in a stem with leaves.

  27. 27. A Cinderella Story  I picked A Cinderella Story as my illustration because you can understand the concept easily by the graphics.  This book is from Disney which shows children’s fairy tales.  The godmother changes the pumpkin into a coach and Cinderella’s cloth rags into a magnificent ball gown. These fantasies make the child be in awe and admiration of the main character.  The story has a powerful, visual imagery which would appeal to any child.  This particular story is good for a mother-daughter to read together because the illustrations would entice the child to want to hear/read the story.  Illustrations are often used to convey the theme/mood of the story.

  32. 32. Idea Generation
  33. 33. Mood board of chosen idea
  34. 34. Proposal Dimensions Eight pages are in the book overall. A5 is the size of the page. Export Format JPEG Advantages: o Most photographs and web images will be jpeg. o Very universal- a recognised standard format that is used by everybody. Disadvantages: It is not the highest quality image you can get because you can lose information due to compression
  35. 35. Proposal Story Overview The mother duck lays eggs. All of them hatch, except for one. The mother notices that this particular egg is bigger than the rest. When the egg is finally cracked open, she is puzzled by the fact that this UGLY creature is hers. She compares and contrasts The Ugly Duckling to her beloved ducklings. As a mother she is protective of this particular duckling, as she sees him being shunned by the others. The ugly duckling couldn’t cope with all these hardships, so he went his own way. After a few months, you find out he has changed into a beautiful swan. His actions show how daring and hopeful he is, no matter the circumstance. His change of heart and physical appearance has allowed him to fly home to his mother.
  36. 36. Production Methods The methods I am using are: • Rotoscoping • Shape warping • Illustration • Photography Rotoscoping- I would use this method mostly because it helps to outline the characters as well as the art style. Shape warping-Helps to distort the image to make it look similar to the original picture. Illustration- To show the physical appearance and transformation of the ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan. It is best to draw and colour these visual images by hand, because it helps to give a realistic effect to the reader. Photography- I would use photography to help capture the animals. Then edit the images in Photoshop. I would also pay special attention to the ducks’ faces because it helps to convey the mood and theme .
  37. 37. Deadline November 6th ,2015 Audience My story is for children aged 3-7. The reason I selected this age group for my book is because the reader would be more drawn to the images and will have some knowledge about animals in their environment. The Ugly Duckling is for males and females. There is a moral behind this story which allows adults to easily convey to young children. Reference audience appeal-The duckling is rejected by the other ducklings because he is UGLY. Then he turns in to a beautiful swan and is finally accepted by the other swans. Joy and acceptance is revealed in the end. Throughout the book, emotional appeal is showed through images and strong descriptive language. This emotional appeal is more likely to attract a female audience but the fact that the duckling is male, would help to attract a male audience.
