8×8 – Spot Illustration

8×8 – Spot Illustration

I completed my spot illustration for the 8×8 brief we were set at uni. I decided to utilise white space, to keep the image simple and not too distracting from the text that will eventually surround it. For this piece, I also added textures to add some visual interest, or else the image being so simple would have looked very flat. I used the same colours as the main illustration and carried some texture over as well. The main images background texture is that of red oxide soil, which appears in the story numerous times. I feel the images connect to one another through the use of the colour-scheme as well as the texture.

I’ve added a side by side below, so you can see and compare both images together.
