[FREE eBook for children] Emma’s Shoes Day

This is beyond happiness.

Making this simple picture book (10 pages) is a milestone for me. So glad I finally made it in the middle of rushing writing and translating deadlines! I didn’t particularly study drawing but I once took an online illustration class 2 years ago. In the class I learned general technique of drawing styles and the basic tutorial of working with Photoshop (by weekly assignments in 1-2 months). Clearly it was a tight schedule, and frankly speaking, as a beginner I found it difficult to followโ€”no, it wasn’t the teacher, of course, because he was great and very helpful–it was just me who had to learn something new from zero, that was why I sometimes just stared at the Photoshop screen and wondering what I was doing there and where all the theories had gone LOL.

I had been planning of making such a picture book after that class. And it turned out that I needed more than 2 years to make it happen, oh well, better late than never ๐Ÿ™‚

I made raw sketches on papers, outlining and scanning them, and then coloring all of them by using Photoshop (the last was the hardest time, believe me! Itโ€™s so true that practice makes perfectโ€”the thing is that I hardly find time to practice). And then I turned it to e-book.

It is just a simple picture book, a beginnerโ€™s work, but I feel grateful that I finally made it, Alhamdulillah. Making โ€˜Emmaโ€™ into real on paper was a wonderful moment, and I want to share the joy with you.

Iโ€™ll appreciate any comments and advice because Iโ€™m still learning. Thank you!
