|The journey from this...|
The story-boarding is done, necessary text changes have been made and all has been approved!
Mr. publisher says he doesn't want I Love You too, I Love You Three confused with Love You Forever -- as if anything can be confused with that, dare I say, classic.
|Got the blues? To diffuse the strong|
sentimentality of the Love You Forever
story, I made use of a cool blue palette.
In spite of the raspberry, I took his wish seriously and decided to separate the two with a different color palette.
When I illustrated Love You Forever I was mindful that the sentiment of the story could be overwhelming if I used candy colors with a lot of pink; therefore, I used a cool palette of mainly blues. For I Love You too, I Love You Three I decided to go with pinks, purples, and oranges applied with a lighter touch than Love You Forever.
My next debate was which medium to use: watercolor and Prismacolor pencil, thinned oils as washes with Prismacolor pencil, pastel and Prismacolor pencil, or marker, and you guessed it, Prismacolor pencil?

There was a dull quality and the paint didn't have the lightness and transparency I wanted, and I realized I probably should have used Arches Oils Paper, made specifically for oil paints. Now the deadline was looming so I had to put on my Quick-Draw McGraw persona, stop mucking around and use a tried and true medium. Visit again soon and I'll show how I finished the illustrations for I Love You too, I Love You Three .
