Pete & the Enchanted Book – my new picture book

I’ve now started work on my 4th picture book. I’m looking forward to writing and illustrating a children’s book again after a two-year break from the genre.

The book is about a little boy called Pete and his encounter with a witch called Willisa.

Below are two characters from my book with their corresponding rigs. A rig is like a digital skeleton bound to the character. Like a skeleton, the rig is made up of joints and bones that are used to act as a handle for bending the character into different positions. As I have no intention of animating my characters – my knowledge of building complex rigs is limited – the rigs I use tend to be very simple. But, as I hope you’ll appreciate, that simplicity will do the job just fine!

About G. Olivo

I love children’s picture books, Disney and Pixar animation and a lot of my illustrations tend to reflect my love for comics, cartoons and picture books.

  1. Gustavo you amaze me with your talents, the 3D modelling must be fun to work in.

    • Thank you Kath. I love 3d modelling, it allows me to illustrate and tell the little stories that I carry in my head! 🙂 Oh and thanks for retweeting my post!
