The Story

The Straw, the Bean, and the Coal


The Straw, the Bean, and the coal

I really enjoyed the thought process that went into this assignment. I used my favorite childhood story from the Grim Brothers The Straw, the Bean, and the Coal. It was hard to convey this story using only 10 slides because noone has ever heard it before. So I narrowed out the strongest points of the story in a way that the viewer could follow along. I woked hard on developing the characters using my own drawings and photo settings but in the end I decided that they needed to be photos also. My color pallate was very bright and lively becuase I wanted it to appeal to children.
