Now I'm going to make an illustration. I sometimes like to use collage and I've got a collection of bits of paper. I'm going to use this one. It's nice sometimes to start a picture with something that you found earlier because then the paper isn't empty.
I like to do the colors first and then the black afterwards the lines. This is Sam in the box. Sam is learning to not be afraid of the dark. Now I'm going to paint Sam's friend. I need the right brush for Betty. I'm going to use a brush that I made myself. Betty is pink. Betty the bird. Betty the bird is teaching Sam, her friend, that the dark is nothing to be afraid of putting him in a box. She's very confident this is going to work. They're good friends.
So this is how you can make a scene using collage, using brushes and paint, using characters that you've invented. You can use anything you like really. There you go.
