Hi Sue,
Thanks for your nice comment. This job was a bit of a rush to say the least. I only had 8 days to do 4 pages, so I had little time to think of ways to improve the workflow.

I Created the models of the children and the props, (the pencil was 'actual size' and made out of plasticine). I posed the characters with 'placeholders' for the pencil and scissors, and in Photoshop, superimposed scaled down versions of the props in their place .

Hi, Chris,i think these are great and loved to hear how you went about making the scene with all the different props.
You must have a great deal of patience!

Cheers Brett:¬) I guess it can get frustraing sometimes. I usually work at actual size to the printed image, so things like fingers can be pretty fiddly. And occasionally a head plops off and falls into a character's lap as the camera shutter clicks:¬(
