Another little composition update, started adding more details and a bit of texture to the edges.
Going to add texture to the shapes now to stop it all looking so flat, been looking forward to this part!
Been trying some more compositions today - can't get this to a place where I'm happy with it yet - hopefully it will all just come together at some point!
I've been playing around with different compositions, trying to make the scene feel like a calm little glade. So far I've just kind of blocked in shapes and it all looks very flat and vectory at the moment - I'm gonna to try and add more plants and details without making it look too busy. Still not sure about the colour scheme - going to keep trying out some options!
Here's my work in progress thus far:
I knew as soon as I saw the brief that I would like to illustrate the word quiet!
As recomended by Brad, I started with a word list. Looking at my list one of the first things that came to mind was a nice cat peacefully sleeping in the sun, all cozy and quiet!
I doodled this down, then sketched a little scene with more animals in a garden.
This one looked a bit hectic with so many critters! So lastly I sketched a cat happily sleeping under some plants, in peace, all on his own.
I'd like to develop this concept further, using the mass of plants to give a feeling of seclusion and quiet.
