I have recently signed up for a couple of Skillshare classes. One of them was learning digital illustration from Brad Woodard. This was a very fun and exciting class that taught me a few new techniques.
We were asked to either illustrate the word loud or quiet for our project. Once we chose which direction we were headed, we had to create a word list. When I created a word list for the word quiet, the three words I used to lead my drawing were: Tranquility, nature and alone.
I decided to take a more abstract approach with this illustration than I normally do. I want to challenge myself to create work in a style that I am not used to. I chose a very bright and wide range of colors for my color palette that I think make each element stand out.
I have added subtle textures to the illustrations which creates a little more depth.
