Childrens book concept.

May 1, 2010

I have always wanted to write/illustrate a children’s book, and I think I have a pretty good idea. This is the very first concept I have come up with. Without giving everything away, the concept obviously revolves around a girl with very long hair. I wanted to see what the character would look like and I think its ready to move on to a story boarding stage already. That is a caricature/cartoon version of my wife as a child, and I want to stress how this is only a concept! I literally just flopped grass and sky in there to make it have a background, so nothing was thought of it. I am most definitely happy with the character design. Maybe on a book shelf near you some day?

UPDATED – So there is a new animated movie coming out based on Rupunzel, so now I am having second thoughts on doing this. I don’t want to look like I stole the idea.
