I just had my first week: paper goods. Here's the result.of the first assignment: a winter holidays postcard featuring penguins:
First we got the mini assignment to loosen up, trying different techniques and get to know the subject. So I was diving into the world of the penguins. I love these animals, their clumsiness is funny. I never saw a baby penguin before, they are so cute. I would love to see them in real.
Baby penguins where not the only ones I drew. I also made these red cheeks variations:
Below more experiments, now I added some more color:
I also discovered this new technique. I drew lines with a sharpie, scanned them in, reversed the black lines into white ones and added the colors with some monoprint brushes I created. I like the effect, I think I'm gonna try this technique more often:
After all these penguin drawings we had to create a winter holiday postcard. The assignment was open. Only thing given was the subject and the size. It needed to be a portrait format. Funny I had several ideas which would fit better in a landscape format...
My challenge was to add a lot of 'icons'. To make a kind of winter holidays collection and still try to keep it organized. Would you buy a card like this?
Next week we gonna take a look at the baby apparel market. I'm already curious!
Will be continued!
