OUGD405 Studio Brief 04 Illustration Style
To achieve the complex and detailed look to these illustrations I have done them at A3 scale to be shrunk to A5. I have started off by drawing out the segmented shapes of the insects and drawing attention to them with varying hues of water colours. this is an attempt not only to make the insects look beautiful and interesting, but also very much themselves they are not cuddly, rather like jewels than anything else. I intend to increase the detail of these illustrations with fine pen work. I also want to go on to create some small patterns around the illustrations to connote the habitats that these insects come from.
