Below are my first set of thumbnails for the cells in the slime mold's life cycle. I looked closely at the influence map I created and so I want to bring the intended style into the same world as the forest and boy scout.
I created these thumbnails by drawing them out on paper with a pencil before going over them in pen. I then took a photograph of the pages and edited the images on photoshop to really bring out the lines of the pen and remove the shadows/colour of the page. I then added colour to them in a similar way to the images in the influence map.
I am very happy with these as not only do they match the intended designs, but they have my own pen drawing style in them. Getting my line drawing style, that I often use in my life drawings, is something I want to bring into more of my work, and hopefully completing these thumbnails can set me on my way to reaching that goal.
