Sweet colours on this one Stef. Still prefer these to the sepia.

Smook said...

I agree with Matt. Colours are working great together!

Steve Daye said...

Hi Stephane! Love your work, I too prefer the colored version, that pig is just great! Don't tell Smook I said that... (he's the jealous type) ;)

Smook said...

sigh.....

Steve Daye said...

You talented devil!

Dont listen to those guys. They've got Sepia madness.

This is pure gold, Stef. ;)

comedy stef! the characters are acting brilliantly. oh! and I do like those colours too.The sepia sketches are a different approach so thats fine ain't it?!

the doodlers said...

These are such great characters. Are you publishing the book internationally or just in Britain?

E m m a n u e l l e . W a l k e r said...

HO. Those characters are awesome, I could easily see them animated!

Eren said...

Tell me when I can buy this delicious children's book because these images so far are yummy!!

Smook said...

Stef said...

Thanks everybody for your nice words, and it's great to see that you're so keen about the project, it's such a great motivation for me!
The Doodlers: I'm going to publish the book myself as it's quite difficult to find a publisher, and it will give me the opportunity to do exactly what I want with the story and the characters, no editing. I'll sell the book via my blog so everybody who's interested will be able to get a copy.
Emmanuelle: Thank you! Uli (Uli Meyer studio) the master, offered me to do an animation test with them doing rodeo, so that should be fun!
Eren: as soon as I will finished the book I'll let you know! thank you!
Smook: I'll let you know via the blog, I'll finish the book as soon as possible.

c'est chouette ,mais si je puis me permettre ton travail de collage dans photoshop, plus bas, est bien plus interessant.(l'ours sur la voiture,genial)..tu as fait d'autres illustrations de ce type?..

Stef said...

Merci Opi! oui j'en ai fait d'autres mais pour Disney, pas pour moi, je vais m'y remettre car le style plait beaucoup et je m'amuse enormement a faire ca sur photoshop.
J'essaierais ce style sur mon projet de livre.

opi said...

ben ecoute ,vivement le prochain projet alors....sic....
