Adaptation B: Black Book of Secrets Mood Board

For my Adaptation B project I want to do the two main characters from the Black Book of Secrets by F.E. Higgins, and the shop they live in. The style I want to go for for the characters are based on the character designs by John Pomeroy for Atlantis: The Lost Empire, the character designs of the humans in 101 Dalmations and the illustrator of the A Series of Unfortunate Events books Brett Helquist. With the colour scheme I want to go for, I was thinking along the lines of muddy colours like browns, reds, oranges and dark greens, taking inspiration from the colour schemes in the cartoon Over the Garden Wall and the game Don't Starve. This is because the village of Pavus Pagus where the story is set is described as a dismal place on the mountainside that is constantly cloudy. As the timezone in the book isn't explicitly stated I was going to take inspiration from other young teen books like A series of Unfortunate Events and how they marry up a mixture of the old and the new. As well as this, the quirky design of the houses and shops from Hogsmeade in Harry Potter for inspiration for what the exterior of the shop would look like.
