So here's a papery project I've been working on: a tunnel book! These books are flat until you open them up, spreading out the pages and giving the image depth. This one's about some sort of Monkey King that lives above the clouds. Here it is when it's flat:



And here it is when it's extended (sorry for the weird green sheet in the background.)









Aaaaand here's the back:

Are you, by any chance, a fan of Jamie Hewlett? He was the illustrator for Tank Girl and The Gorillaz. He's one of my favorite artists. Your drawing styles are very similar.

Hello! Yeah, I'm a huge fan, I actually mostly learned how to draw from copying his stuff, which explains why a lot of my drawings look like cheap Hewletty ripoffs  Tongue Lately I think my style has been gravitating away more, but I decided to just indulge on this one and draw spiky-haired monkeys to my heart's content  Cheesy

Holy cow! Thank you guys so much! I'm floored by all the attention  Cheesy Thanks so much, ceep, for posting a tutorial! Unfortunately I've been neglecting to answer questions though  Embarrassed ok, so I didn't use a computer at all, this is acrylic paint on regular posterboard. I basically drew the tiniest, roughest thumbnails ever of each scene so I could visualize what went where (I'm talking literally less than 5 seconds for each one.) I would recommend doing that as you're putting your book together because it provides a reference without taking any time or locking you into specific parts of the design. The rest was just painting over drawings that I sketched out on the bigger pieces of posterboard.
