Developing an iPad App: Step Five

The Prisoner of Carrot Castle © 2011
Wow! It's been a month since I posted Developing an iPad App: Step Four. Plenty has been happening. Kate has been doing color studies to determine the coloring for scenes and characters. Nur has been using the roughs and color studies to start to build the app.

Step Five: Aiden In Color
Here is our little hero straight from medieval knight play-acting. What do you think?
After a few color studies for scene one, here's how it turns out. The squiggly lines represent the narration. Notice the knight's helmet, sword and shield.

Can you see how beautiful and fun this app will turn out for the iPad. And with the even more brilliant display of the new iPad2. Yeow!

Deep into the story, scene 13 finds our hero trying to escape capture in a narrow courtyard of the castle.
I love the colors, don't you?

One more sneak peek. The Carrot Castle royal family (since this is a week with eyes on royals).

You can see why we're so excited about this project. We have lots of fun things in store for the app, such as reader participation to help Aiden in his quest.

Look for a Facebook Fan page coming soon! 

Please leave your comments below.


  1. Aidan is adorable, and the artwork and colors are super. I can't wait for the day you can demo this for me on your iPad. =)

  2. Chris, the colors and characters are absolutely great!! I am so excited for you. I loved meeting Nur on Saturday. You must be very proud of him and his accomplishments. He's doing a fantastic job and so is the artist. WooHoo!
