Editorial assignment

This was the last assignment for Illustration Essentials! The task was to create an illustration for one of three articles. I went with “Casualties of Toronto’s Urban Skies.”

I experimented with watercolour and gouache for the comps and went with watercolour (and a fine-liner) for the final. I’m not sure if it’s because my watercolours are of a higher quality, but my gouache paintings usually look rougher in comparison.

It was a real struggle to show different textures and reflections with the watercolours and I ended up using pen to help define some some areas.
