The Jungle Book - Process Breakdown
Finished illustration seen as a mock book cover design.
A rough sketch figuring out what I want to include in the piece, and placement of objects.
Basic Color Blockin
I started playing with color in this stage, and changed the color of the line work to a red color, which later gets toned down a little bit.
Final Line Work
I drew over the rough sketch with the same textured brush, but was more precise and all the elements are fully realized.
The finished illustration without text elements. Color is refined and the blue-green and orange color tones have been brightened.
