For me it's a total challenge to draw this comic with watercolors. O_O; But I think it's always interesting to test new tools ! :D
You can see the process on my blog :
It is gorgeous. It takes a lot of courage to did a so detailed comic just by watercolors. I've followed you in deviantart from years ago and I am so happy to find your art again! You've improved and you are the best inspiration. Thanks for your dedication to such a beautiful comic creations!!
Elinor Jones is a comics series of 140 pages, published in 3 books by Soleil (France), between 2010 and 2012.
The story is about a young seamstress, Elinor, discovering the haute couture house Tiffany, famous in England for their prestigious balls. Elinor will be a witness and protagonist of upheavals affecting the workshop and the Tiffany family.
Yemanja is a short episode of Elinor's adventures, taking place during the second half of the book "le Bal de Printemps". The Tiffany team is working on a collection about mythology. For the sheer pleasure of being part of the characters and the atmosphere of the books again, we wanted to see Elinor back in her element, being involved in the creation of one of the Tiffany gowns.
Story : Algésiras.
Art & colors : Aurore
I make this comic in traditional painting : watercolors on DalerRowney paper.
