My Vector Pop-Deco illustration for the Poster Posse's #9 global creative tribute of James Gunn's / Marvel - Guardians of the Galaxy.
Published:
Very happy to be part of the Poster Posse's Global Creative Tribute #9- Guardians of the Galaxy.
 
Here's my vector case study - showcasing my start to finish to my latest pop-deco tribute.
Action & Adventure is what inspired me most for this composition and I decided to interpret that through hard angles, colorful sweeps and high intense lighting.

Imac + Adobe Illustrator + Wacom
NO Tracing, NO Gradient Meshes, NO Plugins, NO Embedded Rasters
Cheers & Enjoy~

As some of you maybe familiar with my process- I don't sketch my ideas on paper
( unless I'm away from my studio- but thinking of getting a wacom cintiq hybrid to solve that issue- :) ).
I prefer to allow the raw energy and excitement to be the driving force and evolve the composition.

So here's 4 quick vector sketches, exploring the possible composition and mood.

I normally stay away from "Custom Brushes"- but I might start to play with them.
For Rocket- I decided to explore just one of the native brushes in Adobe Illustrator CC.
