OnceUponASketch is a Children’s Market Blog.

Norman Grock
and Wilson Williams, Jr
have come together to give insight, education and news about the many
facets of the Children’s Illustration Market. From Children’s Books to
Character Design, Storyboarding, Toys and Lic. Products. Find articles,
interviews and resources to help fuel your education and growth. Jump on
to learn more about the varied industries and what it takes to become
successful and make it in them.



There are versions of these types of templates all over the web.  Ours was far from the first! So I was surprised when folks were asking if they could get .PDF's of the ones we showed in a previous post. Awesome!

I personally use these when I am laying out my Children's Books and doing my thumbnails. Whether digitally or traditionally.   I also use them to lay out the type and get an idea of where things will flow the best. This is also helpful in giving the client a visual idea of how there book will be layed out and appear.

DOWNLOAD PACKETS AT END OF POST!


We altered these a bit so that they could be used for that purpose better.

OUAS_SQUARE PAGE_PB TEMPLATE


We moved the page numbers and descriptions above the page so that you can scribble on them freely.

OUAS_TALL PAGE_PB TEMPLATE OUAS_WIDE PAGE_PB TEMPLATE


OUAS_SQUARE PAGE_PB TEMPLATE


We included three page size formats; Tall, Wide and Square.

OUAS_SQUARE PAGE_11X17_PB TEMPLATE


We made 8 1/2" X 11" as well as 11X17 variations of all of the above to give you some versatility in scale.

Follow the link to download the ones that work best for you and your needs! Enjoy!

Wow, it's cool.. I never considered doing sth like this before.. then again, just as it's important for comicers to do thumbnails firstit is also important to plan out where the pictures would go because of the flow. :3
Thanks for sharing the templates even! :lol:
