Explorer Tools of the Trade

Hi everyone,

I'm really inspired by adventures and traveling, so I chose to do an 'explorer' theme. I wanted to choose objects that are more timeless.

I just did the sketching phase so far but wanted to show my progress.





This final one is the composition I landed on. Looking forward to bringing this into Photoshop. I imagine things might shift once I do so. 


I've finished up the project. Here are some of the ink marks I made:


...And here are the final compositions.

I did two different color schemes. I'm not sure which one I like best. I might actually try a third. 

Let me know what you think!



This was a fun class, and I really enjoyed learning this illustrating technique. As a graphic designer who also enjoys painting, I'm always looking for a way to combine analog and digital, and bring more hand done elements into my work.
