It's a kind of magic...

I just wanted to share my latest work with you, actually not the work itself so much, but rather a transformation from original image to the final result, thanks to Photoshop Allmighty ;)

There's been a call for Croatian illustrators to send their work on the theme of one of the fairytales written by brothers Grimm, since this year is 200th anniversary of publishing their collection of stories. Croatian publishers of children's books want to make international exhibition with these works and offer to one of the illustrators to illustrate the whole book. I thought it might be a challenge for me, and since I grew up with fairytales (and still growing up with them ;), I decided to send my work. I chose Snow White as my theme.

I used different techinque this time, I made a doll of Evil Queen and Snowhite and a scenery and photographed them. Afterwards, I photo-manipulated it and drew some additional elements in Photoshop.

So, this is the original image and my doll, of course ;)...

....and this is the final result:


For the next one, I had to do a photoshoot in the forest, Snow White was posing for me ;)



..and the final image:


I'm quite happy how these turned out, so wish me luck! Even if I still don't get to illustrate a whole book, I still enjoyed working on these two illustrations. And that's what counts ;)
