All drawings I’ve made so far have been independent pieces and I've never really illustrated something. None of them were part of some form of larger project, sequence, book, graphic novel or anything nor had a previously defined theme or purpose.
Now I had the idea of illustrating a piece of instrumental music for children I made a while ago. The song (not really a song, but it’s easier to call it this way) always had sort of a loose story for me, so I thought it’d be fun to try my hand at illustrating it as a way to get my feet wet.
At first I figured it would be somewhat of a simple project. Right at the level of my amateurism: something like five or six images to be shown in sequence with the music. Then I put the song to play and started imagining what I’d draw for which part and the number of images started to grow. I got into thumbnailing (because it seems that’s what you do to plan your stuff) and now I have a feeling that this is going to be a much more complex endeavor than I at first imagined and that I have no idea what I’m doing most of the time.
Well, does anyone out there have suggestions of SVS courses and/or other resources that can help me with this? Not even sure what exactly is the culprit… maybe the storytelling aspect of it? I don’t know.
In case anyone is curious, here’s the song: https://apptronica.bandcamp.com/track/the-kitten-on-our-roof
I even thought of writing to 3PP with this question, but I felt the music part of it would be lacking... or maybe I'm just shy... Anyway, thank you for any advice!
