Title: Truth in Fiction
I got an email from Art Director. Christine Navin at Barnard Magazine (which is issued by Barnard College in New York City) almost a month ago for their editorial piece.
The story is written by Dylan Landis, and titled “Truth in Fiction.” It starts with a story from Landis’s novel of this young, talented, but damaged girl named Rainey Royal and her troubled friends. It eventually develops a discussion of how readers/audiences see its author’s actual (or non-fictional) experience in her fictional novel. It is really delicate and definitely gives me a different interesting point of view to read “fictional” story next time.
I really enjoyed the whole process of this assignment (hope AD. Christine did too… haha)
We started from tumbnails;
She liked the idea of #5, so I played with it more;
Then #3, but no hands, and colour comps;
and colour this!
(Sorry, I totally forgot to take some screenshots of colouring process)
Anyway, this happened after all.
and I got this in a print as well:)
It was really wonderful to work with AD. Christine. She was very quick, always available, on-point to what she wants to see, and guided me through this! Thank you so much!!
Hope you enjoy it.
