Mr. Matthew Cruickshank, the illustrator of Treasure Island, was nice enough to answer a few questions about his process for me. You can check out more of his artwork on his blog, Ye Crooked Legge.
What was your process when designing TI?
The process was the same as working on any design, print or story project. Small thumbnail sketches first to look for an interesting composition, then fleshing a few out to show colour before working up the final image. Sometimes the roughs are completely discarded, but it’s still important to have thought about the different ways the design could’ve been staged.
