The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish

Here are pieces of my work for the cartoon design course.The task was to create visuals for a fictional upcoming 10 to 20 minute cartoon based on a fairy or folktale. The story I choose was The tale of the fisherman and the fish. This was written by the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.

According to the tale a poor old couple live by the sea and the husband who is a fisherman goes out and catches a golden fish by accident. The fish promises to fulfill the old mans wishes if he let's go. But when the fishers wife hears that they can wish anything she wants everything...

The cover page clearly shows how many designs the fish went through.

The backgrounds were pretty hard to come up with. Mainly because
I didn't have a clue how to draw one (I'm better in drawing characters)

Some early sketches for the fisherman and his wife (the clowns staring at you kids)
Some finished designs for the main characters. The woman has 3 kinds of clothes for the three kind of homes.
One for the mobile home, one for the luxury mobile home and one for the skyscraper

This second home is pretty much a mash of a boat and a train...and maybe a tank.

And the skyscraper which might be a giant robot.
