Illustration Challenge #16: The Emperor's New Clothes

(My personal Illustration Challenge for 2017 is to complete one 'page spread' from a popular, modern or classic children's story each week, picked randomly from a hat. Using lines from the original text, I am re-creating the 'imagery' in my own way, just for fun!)

Woops... I accidentally had 3 months off.

But hey, I was doing many other fun things.

So, we're back with The Emperor's New Clothes by Hans Christian Anderson.

The Emperor was very happy.

"These are the best clothes I have ever had," he said.

He laughed and waved to all the people and they waved back at him.

I really enjoyed doing this. I decided to get back into the challenge by just sketching this out really quickly and did most of the layering in Photoshop. I am pleased with it, despite it being a very quick piece (while the kids are off school I'm grabbing time when I can).
