Celebrate your stripes

Really enjoying this project! I'm constantly reminded that so many creative works start with words, not always sketches. I took Mary Kate's advice and googled images of animals until something stood out: zebras!

After brainstorming key words and phrases I did some thumbnails of the head and body, then started on the representational word. 

I have trouble understanding the difference between illustrative, representational and decorative, not realizing that Mary Kate defined them really well on the Skillshare website (I'm using the mobile Skillshare app), so I think the first version was a mash-up of all three!

After taking some time away from my pencil and paper, I thought more simply about the animal and came up with two other versions.

I took some elements from some of the thumbnails and created two final sketches.
