Today I continued to work with story scenes. I selected basic backgrounds and started color correcting and building them. In order to stay true to original artist’s visual style, I modified premade charcters to have an Orthodox family appearance. The mother will have a child on her knees and the family will be singing. I slightly modified the grandmother mock up to be actively making food in a mixing bowl.
I still need to create children for the Orthodox family, the Uncle and his partner, and several Ethiopian students. These scenes are still in progress, but I expect to be close to the completion of the project by the end of next week, only needing final touches
Scene 4 starting placement
Scene 7 With new sky added. Native flowers will be added to this in areas where the layers are difficult to blend, and the Uncle and his partner walking down the street holding hands.
Scene 11 will include more images related to English language and also Ethiopia.
Scene 12 is an elementary school classroom that will show the healthy Aunt instructing
