I didn’t finish this deadline as much as I finished two other patterns this week that I wanted to share…
This is my finished illustration for my first assignment for my class on Pikaland. I’m so happy with it…when I drew the leaves and colored them in, the pattern looked so dull, but once I added the shadows to make the pattern more three-dimensional, it was an instant change. Plus that pink/purple color….love!
And this is my finished pyrex design for the upcoming Spoonflower contest (‘retro kitchen’ themed, with a restricted color palette). I feel like my ‘basic’ surface design pattern is the background of this guy - the little dashed stripes. So that kind of works, right?
Anyways, I have a great excuse for not having a really appropriate finished product this week! Besides the fact that I’ve been working on projects for my pikaland class, I’m also working on my very first professional illustration job! It’s extremely exciting. I had 11 or so drawings to do, mostly just linework, with just a tiny bit of color, and not a ton of time to get them done. I finished them up last night (unless there are other edits that have to happen in the next few days, which is very possible) and am hoping to have another related assignment to start for the same client in the next few days. Yay!!!
