Perfume - The Story of a Murderer

Hello everyone!

For my project I choose "Perfume - The Story of a Murderer". 
Perfume is a Patrick Suskind's classic novel that tells the story of a French man who owns one sublime gift - an absolute sense of smell. Driven by his passion he goes in search of the ingredients to create the best perfume in the world leaving a trail of death and suffering wherever he goes.

***Visual References


I chose to work in typography with elements that refer to femininity, softness and elegance (roses and ornaments) and after that add the colors something more aggressive and with a one portion over visual impact.

***Roughs and Process


Gradually I was finishing and clearing over the drawing. I thought I was getting a lot of elements, so I chose to take some of them to other parts of the project, creating new possibilities to exploit them.

***Final Dropcap


***Complete Project


I really enjoyed doing this project and I was happy with the result. II hope to create more things and participate in other classes very soon.
And thanks Jessica, your work inspires me a lot!

Please leave your suggestions. I would love to have feedback from all of you.
