My #MATSBootcamp2016 May assignment was a wall art / tarot card creation. These tasks are always something new and interesting! I took liberties with my Taurus sign and the Hierophant counterpart, added some cats - because, well I do - and here is the final outcome. Super happy with how this piece turned out and the feedback has been oh, so helpful and supportive. Cheers + Onward!
Below are some process photos leading to my final design:
The sketch - Where I figure out how many cats I can add.
Inking with a rollerball pen (sometimes an ink brush) over a my light table.
Seperate texture spots drawn over the outlines.
All of the elements are scanned, digitized, and combined in Illustrator. Many hours are spent on finding the right balance of color as I tend to fall into an abundance green - jade - turquoise palettes, and I'm always trying to stretch my tastes. Luckily, the Taurus sign is earthy and I got to swim in my favorite colors for this assignment.
Thanks for taking a look!
