Greetings, I am Zeynep Dural. I am a professional children's book illustrator based in Coventry,UK. I've studied Cartoon and Animation in my Bachelor Degree and get a postgraduate education in Children's Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art. I have been working as a freelance children's book illustrator for more than 5 years.
Let me explain the my picture book design process.
Firstly, I will read the whole story detailed and create the main characters sketches based on story. After author and I both are satisfied with them, I will draw the rough storyboard sketches with all of the page layouts like where we put the texts or how the pages is going to look. Than the colouring stage will come. After that I usually pick one of the inside double pages and make it suitable for cover, however it depends on author's choice I can draw it from the scratch too. Finally I will prepare title and index pages, then your book will be ready to publish.
This listing includes;
- Character Designs,
- Finished Illustration pages,
- Cover Design,
- Book Format.
This listing is about 32 pages picture book.
