I could only make six thumbnails, due to lack of time. I I had to go to two orientations back to back yesterday and as a result, I had no time to get these thumbnails done until today. So I ask you, out of all of the sketches, which one do you think should I go with? I need to know as soon as possible.
I decided to change the first sketch entirely. The metaphor for this image is still the same as the original first sketch. I drew some tree branches to show that there’s some background and that the boy is looking at a reflection from the puddle. Here’s the image that inspired this sketch below:
Here’s the article for this sketch: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-muppet-sesame-street_us_58cf5f15e4b0be71dcf5b455
I redrew this sketch and while the the characters for the most part retained the same pose, there is some differences with the hand placements. I also added a background to the drawing. In case you missed it, this sketch is for this article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/autism-muppet-sesame-street_us_58cf5f15e4b0be71dcf5b455
I used two photos as references for this sketch redo. The first one below is for the pose and handle, while the second one below is for the background.
Here are my final sketches for the Editorial Illustration Project. The first picture is a boy with autism looking at the lake, seeing the muppet, Julia as the reflection. The metaphor for this sketch is that he sees the muppet as himself. This sketch is used to represent the article, “Meet The New Kid On ‘Sesame Street’: Julia, A Muppet With ” by Mary Papenfuss. The second picture is the monstrous mom approaching the kid that bullied her son with a soft ball. The metaphor for this sketch is that the mother has turned into a monster after witnessing her son being bullied. That sketch is for the article, ” When Mothers Bully Back” by Susan Perabo. The third picture is the boy with autism touching Julia’s hand as they stare at each other. The metaphor for this sketch is the same as the first picture. This sketch alo represents the same article as the first one. So which one do you think I should go with? Comment below.
