Tanned Girl

Tanned Girl

I have no idea who the beautiful girl is in this illustration unfortunately. The illustration was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator. I used mesh gradients to achieve the hyper realistic skin shading.

The contrast of the left image to the right was a subtle nice and nasty contrast. The girl on the left is paler, less overt and more angelic. She has bikini ‘white bits’ showing she has an element of dignity. The girl on the left in contrast is tanned and, although almost exactly the same image, looks more outgoing. The darker skin tone and lack of tan lines suggest promiscuity and lack of shame.

I could have worked on it more in Photoshop but I wanted the image to be entirely vector and therefore completely scalable.

Goodbye Summer Love

Goodbye Summer Love

An image created in Adobe Illustrator. My attempt with this illustration was to try and portray dewey eyed sadness. The idea was that a summer romance was cut short and she knows she’ll never be with the man she loved so briefly.

The muted pale blues allow the stronger reds to dominate the scene linking the lips to the distant plane.

This was a study and attept to digitally create a simple watercolour image using Adobe Photoshop. Many brushes were used in various layers to create the effective watercolour texture.

A gradient multiply overlay was used to add the colour wash from pink, through red, to plum.
