Experiment #212: Clarice’s Buying Trip

Clarice runs the Fashion Department of the Idea Emporium. She bought herself a Roller Coaster Hat, popular among the giraffes.

Playing with Alien Botany

The Nursery Department grows and sells Alien Botany from seeds from all over the planets. I bet you didn’t know that.

I’m developing the pages for the book and here’s a sneak peek for all you readers.

What started out as a sketch…

Before clean-up and for the coloring page.

Creating a planet for the Alien Plants. It’s part of the lesson. Environments are very important and give meaning and understanding to the object.

Adding color digitally. It’s coming to life! Even the butterflies think so.

Adding a full environment and background — a photograph at 50% transparency. Oooh. I wonder where these plants are from. Well, there’s lots of trees there.

Until next time, thanks for being part of the process of creating the Idea Emporium Book & world!
