July SVS challenge: Independence

Illustration

I’ve been taking some courses through Society of Visual Storytelling, and each month they have an art challenge. July was “independence” so I came up with some ideas, and this story idea finally came to me, about a little marionette who is freed when her strings break. She eventually comes back and frees her friends.

Here are the initial sketches as I worked out the idea and character design.

After some feedback, I moved the scissors to the rabbit’s belt, to help make the narrative more clear.
