Cherry Blossom Trees

Heya! Here are some cherry blossom tree variations I did for a fashion shoot last week:


I gave them different variations because I wasn't given much info on how it would be applied or what colour the accompanying garments would be. This took me back to the days when I worked on Fall of the Samurai at The Creative Assembly, where I had to create illos in the style of Japanese wood block prints. Memories~

This will be featured in a fashion magazine in October and I can't wait to see it!

Panda Flute


I gave the client notes to explain the logic behind the design/decision-making,
but felt it might give away too much to post here.


Some quick expression variations.
I didn't realise until I'd submitted it that the flute is backwards. D'oh!
It's okay, she's a left-handed panda...




Cheers,
Naomi

Dance Trio WIP

Hello~ I need to work on another task atm so I thought I'd post where I'm at with the trio so far:


They're starting to come together and I much prefer this organic style of painting (all one layer). The Irish River dancer's face is bugging me atm so I might re-paint it entirely...otherwise I'm happy with the direction they're going in so far. I'll add textures towards the end with the finishing touches, but will aim to keep it subtle so they look more like traditional paintings.

Let me know if you have any feedback in the comment section. :)

Also, I have a store! These paintings will be available to buy as prints/iPhone covers and more when they're finished. In the meantime, check out what's up now:


Cheers,
Naomi

Dance WIPs

I'm still in the process of developing my style atm and am having fun painting some dance-related pieces.

They're all WIPs - I'm bouncing between them all simultaneously so they look coherent.

Scarf & Print Designs

Hello! If you follow me on any FB/Twitter/G+ then you'll know that I've been working on this:

Pencil/charcoal/chalk pen on Bristol paper;
print and scarf colour applied via Adobe Photoshop.


Here's a mashup of reference/doodles:



As mentioned in the previous post, I have been producing some print designs recently. Partly for fun and partly so I can use it in illustrations like this.
