It was a gorgeous summer evening when our friends came over to play the various parts in Sue’s graphic novel. We are fortunate to have so many creative and theatric friends who with their props brought elements of the story to life. Sue will take these reference photos to begin illustration. She’s still working on the character sheets as well so we’re still a few weeks away from story-boarding.
I’ve uploaded some of the best or funniest photos to flickr. Feel free to click through to see what we put together. The photos focus mostly on the two clowns, but we also see the fortune teller warning various people of impending doom, shots of the circus grandmaster, and a few shots of the two young lovers.
More shoots are yet to come and we hope to share some more drawings next week.
