“The Giant Egg” mini-comic for children

We decided to start a series of mini-comics for children. The first one is called “The Big Egg” and presents  the adventure our four little bugs friends, on a nice spring day. They are very good friends, they live together on The Small Island where they play, learn, explore and every day is a good day for some funny adventures :-).

The mini-comic can also be found directly on Issuu and, of course, below :)

I’m trying to also show you a bit about how it was made. So basically, everything was done in Photoshop, from start to finish, in different passes, adding new details every time.

Let’s start with the initial sketches …

As you can see, these are pretty rough sketches as my goal here was just to give a logical shape to my little story.

And here’s a quick preview of the design workflow for the 2nd page …

I hope this made sense to you and you enjoyed my little inrto into the world of comics … using Photoshop :) Maybe next time I’ll try to do another one using a vector based program like Flash … Until then, keep drawing ! 😀
