2 Refine the idea
As I continue to develop the sketch I start to realise that the original idea of the girl playing with dragons doesn’t sit right – the relationship between them isn’t natural or intuitive enough. I decide to have the girl look like she’s creating the creatures instead. In the first sketch, she’s creating the dragons by manipulating a magical amulet in her hands; in another sketch, she’s creating birds and a rainbow. In the end, I prefer the dragon idea and go on to develop that.
