I approached Bera a little differently than Maddy. Maddy had a lot more hatching in it, I used ink to describe most textures. In Bera I'm using more of a mixed media approach. I used the same level of hatching and detail but certain things I chose to describe using watercolour washes. The reason I did this was twofold. Firstly I like every series to have a distinct look, recognizably my style but with differences that suit the story. And secondly it allowed me to draw the book faster. I hd a fraction of the time to do Bera that I had to do Maddy. So, there was a practical reason as well.
