Three Weathers, final, x-post in P&I



Here is a colorized version(PS8) of an pen & ink drawing of the exercise for Illustration class of three interrelated products set in an imagined setting., possibly for an ad campaign. This is an early draft, just for fun. The colors are not as strong as I would have done them in gouache.

C&C always welcome, there was an earlier thread that showed each item done in stippling, this combined them.

Greg

Re: Three Weathers, final, x-post in P&I

I think the colors are fine and like the piece a lot. If I had any advice, it would be to vary the thickness of your lines to add visual interest and weight to the forms. Also, with the colors, adding some shadow areas, even if it is just spotted blacks will help anchor the viewer's eye to specific spots on the piece. Right now, the eye trapps on the back of that skater blade because of the dark spotted area, and could use something to counter balance it.

Just a suggestion, but I think you're on the right track.
