This series started from a Skillshare class. Instead of designing a geometric wild animal, I decided to illustrate the face of my very spirited dog, Grace. She has extremely distinct features, like her defined eyebrows and the large wrinkle that often resides along her forehead, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a portrait of her.
I kept the design very simple—with no textures, shadows or gradient—and tried to use variants in color to give the image depth.
