Sacred Raindeer watercolor

I was interested exploring watercolor techniques and developing cartoony looking characters.

I´m also interested in religious symbols so I took reference in the pictorial effects of catholic sacred imagery.

The exercises for practice where a very useful starting point, and I had a lot of fun making patterns.


The halo element of La Virgen de Guadalupe was something that I always wanted to explore. So the challenge was to replicate an element that configures a sacred symbol, but not offending the original piece of art. All I can say is that is was fun to explore that element because it´s a powerful design resource.



My color choices were based on this this images, although It was a very intuitive process. 


So this is the final result. I enjoyed making this project alot.
