Here is a digital colour sketch I am working on for a long over due commission piece. Here I wanted to work out how the colours would all work overlapped over top of one another. While working on it, I figured out that painting bare Aspens over top of one another was a challenge on making sure that the colours had enough contrast to not end up blending.
So I was contacted a while ago by these incredibly hip people that wanted me to design up their wedding invitation, along with the RSVP. This is what we came up with! Their wedding is out in the mountains just up my ally after working on the Going Camping series. I used a bear to symbolize his strength and a deer for her grace. I drew from inspiration from the colour palette for the wedding and vintage patches. Since they both love music so much and that they regularly play guitar hero, I thought it would be a fun to illustrate them party rocking out for the back of the RSVP. Congrats to Tim and Erika, all the best (and sunny weather) on your big day!!
