This project was done for Branded Research/Flight School Publishing.
// Process //
The original artwork were print outs and really rough flattened PDFs, not made for animation, and not in the dimensions of the iPad. My role was to recreate the illustrations (original images referenced), by redoing the linework, recoloring the images, and preparing all the layering for animation. Most images, I added up to a 1/2in on the borders to fit the iPad dimensions (1024 x 768). The client also wanted to add pages, games, and other assets into the storybook app. Some of the games, some of the pages, as well as some of the assets were created from scratch with the direction of the client/art director.
// Goal //
To make this fun and interactive for a kid with the use of popular kids' games relative to the story, as well as having most of the animations interactive by the user touching images on the screen. Pop-up text boxes, soundFX, and voice audio for the story added in development.
