🥰 This has to be my favorite illustration yet! I decided to revisit and recreate my love of plants illustration with something that resonates with me more. Going to plant shops or just being in nature in general always make me feel happy, at peace and incredibly creative! This is also largely inspired by @pueblo.life , a local adorable plant shop in the valley that sells the most beautiful and unique plants, pots and everything in between.
I’m really proud of this piece, not just of the execution, but also how I managed to complete it (from concept to finished rendering) in 26 hours, in a span of five days. Something I haven’t managed to do in a while together with my full time job.
I’ve been getting faster at creating more illustrations that I was able to complete three new pieces in a two month period. I started adapting Bobby Chu’s advice of drawing faster than my brain can catch up, which is great for me because I tend to overthink all my work and get bored with a project easily. With the speed that I’m doing, I’m also starting find out the style I gravitate towards to and develop my own look.
I’m happy with how the greens turned out as well; It’s a color I usually avoid because I feel like I always end up with a flat drawing and can never make it look as lively as it is in real life, but this one actually worked!
I hope you enjoy my novel and my illustration! I’m excited to work on more WIP projects
