(ENG) I made use of two main techniques to illustrate this book. For the characters, I utilized watercolor and ink; whereas for the environment I used textures made out of chalk and paint, and also photographs than I then cut and modified digitally to fit the layouts.

(ESP)
Para ilustrar este cuento hice uso de dos técnicas bastante diferentes. Por un lado, a la hora de realizar los personajes, utilicé tinta y acuarelas. Para los fondos en cambio, recurrí a fotos y texturas mixtas que posteriormente manipulé digitalmente.

(EUS)
Ipuin hau ilustratzeko bi teknika nagusi erabili nituen. Batetik, pertsonaiak egiteko tinta eta akuarelak erabili nituen; eta bestetik, igurugiroa sortzeko klarionaz eta pinturaz eginiko ehundurekin eta argazkiekin egin nuen lan. Hauek ordenagailua erabiliz moztu eta eraldatu nituen diseinuarekin bat egin zezaten.

wow man. three different languages. :)

I love the design of the characters. The style and the colouring method makes even ugly characters look very appealing.

Thanks for the comment! I'm very glad you like them. Actually I got some criticism for the "Bat" character saying that it was a bit too ugly/scary for kids.
