Elements & Principles

Elements & Principles - student project

I really enjoyed this class. I've been trying to figure out which elements of illustrations I like to incorporate them into my style for a while. This has really helped me realise what I prefer from illustrations.

COLOUR

I prefer slightly more muted colours. What I've chosen for this board reminds me of quite a retro 70s style with lots of warm tones. 

 

TEXTURE

I prefer there to be some texture within blocks of colour. This either comes from a slight variation in tone within a colour. Or in some instances using watercolour as a medium which naturally creates its own texture.

 

LINE

I only like a small amount of line work within an illustrating, relying more on blocks of colour. When I do use line work I prefer it not to be perfectly straight. Adding to the hand drawn look of an illustration. They are mostly used to add detail within blocks of colour.
