So, some time ago now I decided to do visual development work on the tale of Ms. Tiggy Winkle by Beatrix Potter. I have set the story in Couillure France in the late 1800's, 1890 ish.
If you are unformiliar with this short story I highly reccomend that you read it. It is one of my favourite childrens stories, and if you read it then you will have a better understanding of what I am drawing.
You can read the story here:http://etext.virginia.edu/etcbin/toccer-new2?id=PotWink.sgm&images=images/modeng&data=/texts/english/modeng/parsed&tag=public&part=1&division=div1
The fallowing post is a really rough block in for the hill lucy journeys through and on the left is a breakdown of all of the hills levels. I did an enormous amount of research on the plantlife that grows in the region of Couillure in the south of france. The rough drawings I posted above are design studies for the first level with almond trees, spanish broom bushes and grass.
I will be posting process work for this story development throughout the next few months.
