Wonderland | Skillshare Projects




A few weeks ago I made an illustration of a carousel horse and it seems without realising it I seem to have stumbled across a new trend as I have been seeing horses and unicorns ever since. 

I made a static automatic pattern with my carousel horse but have been meaning to bring it to life a bit more so thought I would tackle it as my piece. This morning I almost changed my mind when I saw a few other similar in the project page but have decided to continue on with it anyway.

Collections are something I have trouble with and only ever seem to make singular pieces and so this is something I want to work on this year. Project planning is another thing I want to work on as I seem to struggle with planning out a design before hand I always struggle to pull it off. I usually don't go with the whole mood boards, etc for this reason and find if I just sit down with nothing planned I seem to get better results. I guess this is all part of being a novice and not being able to structure myself efficiently. 

This is the origional I will be working on.....


I have to admit I'm not much of a sketcher as I'ma lousy drawer and find I can manipulate much better digitally than on paper so don't seem to spend too much time on sketching things out. 

Here is a page from my prelimenary sketches and the final piece in 2 different color ways.....haven't quite decided which one I prefer yet :)



My finnished collection isn't typically correct for a collection but collections are something I struggle with and normally just do singular designs. This is definitely something I plan to work on for 2016 for my portfolio, so thank you Elizabeth you have been very helpful and things can only improve with practise :)
