Play! Artist Malane Newman was commissioned by Mattel as a colorist for several pages within the Barbie – A Fashion Fairytale storybook.
Each of the illustrations were 2-page spreads. The pencil sketches came from three different artists located in London. As this book was based on a movie, most of the reference material provided came from still frames from the movie.
If you’re curious as to her process, Malane has written a detailed blog post about her experience which you can read here. In the meantime, take a look at a few of the illustrations she colored below.
