Recent illustration for Midwest Living Magazine. The focus of the article was on the health benefits of sensory deprivation tanks. Here's my process from sketch to final.
I created three variations on the theme. The art director chose the second sketch, the one in the middle. I liked that one, too.
These are the parts and pieces I created to make this images. It includes a couple layers of hand-drawn lines and textures.
This is the final image with all the pieces put together and some paint texture overlays (see my previous post on paint textures). I was asked to present a few color variations. I was happy to have a small amount of layers so I could easily edit the colors. This version was my favorite.
