Storybook illustrations surely are fun to make especially when you have high quality images to work with which I usually don't as I tend to use stockimages. But this time I had photos I've taken myself. Only the background is stock and rest is all my own resources.
The working file for this was 900Mb and my computer was struggling to handle any moves I made in my photoshop. It was slow but a lot of fun. I lost the track of how many layers I used in CS5 but I think it was closer to 30. All editing was done in Camera Raw 6.0 and CS5.
I've created this of my friend's daughter and her teddy.
I'd love to hear your opinion...:)
Thanks for Frozenstocks on DeviantArt for the background:
