Creating the character’s personality
The first challenge was to create a character with a personality of its own. To define it, I relied on this illustrated diagram to begin to visualize what aspects define Julia
These are some of the first sketches of Julia to represent what her appearance would be like, the clothes she is wearing, her expressions …
This is the design of different backgrounds that could appear in history, both indoors and outdoors.
These are Julia’s final designs. We decided to use a sketch and watercolor style, to give it a more artisanal and airy look.
Defining the scenes
Drawing the character in his environment is not easy. In the first scenes, I had to repeat the drawings several times until the result was good.
