Here's my progress on the storyteller from yesterday. I filled in each shape and started to explore colors. I generally go by what feels right, but a bit of research about color symbolism helps me get started. For example indigo can indicate creativity and intellect, and teal trustworthiness. Although there's a good chance I'll keep changing as I add textures and start developing the story, so don't get attached just yet!
Since we're on the topic of storytelling, I saw this video on Ted Talks a couple days ago that I think you'll enjoy. This guy writes children's book and his stories go beyond the boundaries of the book. He gets kids to talk to a fictional whale, it's awesome.
