Concept Sketches for The Ugly Duckling, The Princess and the Pea and Sleeping Beauty

Following the previous fairytale initial letters, the next 5 weeks or so were spent working on the second part of that commission. I was asked to design three larger illustrations and three smaller illustrations for the front and back of the product's boxes. As with the letters, I needed some time to generate some ideas for how to best represent and tell the story of each of the three are a couple of the more interesting sketches!

The princess' future crown and that annoying little pea:

The Sleeping Beauty:
