To start I sketched out a rough idea for what will be on each page. In this stage I had no written story yet but was working from a story I read online. some of the concepts drawn here were taken onto the refinement stage while others were discarded.
At this point, I had to narrow down what illustrations were working well and refine those illustrations into cleaner rendering for the color stage.
Here are a few of the images I selected to refine. I focused on the character design of King Midas and his daughter.
