In anticipation of the upcoming New Year, as a rule, we come up with a series of gingerbread boards and cookie dies with the image of an animal - the symbol of the coming year according to the eastern calendar. 2018 is the year of the dog. This is what we managed to prepare for this year.
As usual, at the beginning of work, I get acquainted with the form, study how one breed differs from another. In this series I wanted to use exactly the Russian dog breeds. After drawing the sketches, a stage of stylization follows, simplifying the form. It is necessary to create a folklore image characteristic of gingerbread art. At the same time, I want to convey the characteristics of the breed of dogs.
In the end, it turned out here are such stamps for cookies. One series is more like illustrations based on Russian dog breeds. The second series turned out very reminiscent of pictures from lubok a Russian popular print.
These forms seemed to us very successful for gingerbread boards.
Time to bake incredibly delicious gingerbread and cookies! This can be a wonderful treat for yourself or a cozy gift for loved ones.
[Soon there will be a small cute picture with a dog :)]
Thanks for watching!
