OUGD603 — Brief 08 - Tokyo Fixed Jersey Kit - Illustrations

I started my illustrations by gathering a selection of references to understand different branch constructions and leaf patterns. 

From these I sketched a selection of four trees in fine-liner.

Once the sketches were complete I got to work on vectoring the trees into a more detailed, stylised format to allow for quality printing and simplicity in design.


Even though it took a lot longer than I had originally hoped for, I was very happy with the outcomes of each of the illustrations, they all looked different but at the same time part of a set. This was something that would be an important element upon developing the pattern.

I sent the first one to Kinoko just to make sure that I was fulfilling the look they were envisioning and fortunately I had understood what they were wanting.
