Hey, kids (and grownups, too!) - see how Kevin creates!

Topsy Turvy Tales have a unique look created by artist and illustrator, Kevin Scott Collier. Here are examples from a work-in-progress called Chizzy's Topsy Tale.

First, Kevin draws the image on white paper using a black marker.



After scanning the art into his computer, Kevin "inverts" the image, making it a "negative."


Next, using rbg color and paint buckets in Adobe Photoshop, Kevin colors the images.


Finally, each color area is individually selected and a "lighting effect" added to create shadows and dimension.


The illustration is complete!
