I need to do the lettering now. I suppose. I'll design the type in Photoshop over the image, print it up without the image, trace it by hand, scan it in, composite it with the image, and then it's time for the finishes in Illustrator. So. It's type time. Right.
When I walked to the building I wanted in the background, it was adorable, it looked exactly the way I wanted the house in the story to look -- and it was facing north, and there was no way I was going to get good light on it this time of year.
And then, across the street, catching the light just right, was the house where the rooster character makes his first appearance. You got to run with what you got, you know?
Next up? The black-and-white plate, and the start of the unified image.
