A Teddy Bear Tale Book 2 – Concept Art Influencing Story Changes

Concept Art of Tristan on a Clockwork Riding Creature

About half way through the book Tristan rides a many feathered creature with two legs and a long neck. As many of you may know A Teddy Bear Tale artist Dan Nokes runs a daily quick sketch challenge so I asked him to draw a quick concept of Tristan on one of these creatures.

The concept leaned a little on the long-necked two legged description, but also made the Riding Creature more mechanical. Now here is a good example of the art influencing the story;  in this case after seeing the art I thought it would be really cool if these Riding Creatures were actually clockwork and had to be wound to be used with a huge key sticking out of their back. The mental and actual image of Tristan on his mechanical clockwork steed is just too good to pass up, and also helps with a story detail… Stay tuned for more Concept Art updates and please help A Teddy Bear Tale Part Two launch on Kickstarter by clicking here!
