Work in Progress
This piece is made in Adobe Illustrator for my digital studio class. The animal in the illustration is a bear with a hawthornia plant growing out of the left eye. I personally love bears so I wanted to make a piece with one, so I looked at a few references of the plant and a bear’s portrait to help me get proportions right. I’m also a huge fan of pixel art and wanted to try it out. So, I made a base drawing and filled in the parts I wanted to be shaded red and the highlights cyan. Then, I created the line work and am still trying to fill in the color. This is a tedious project! Despite that, I do like how it’s turning out so far, although I can see or infer some tweaks I’ll have to complete.
