3 little digital pigs
These are two sample illustrations I did for a job bid. I find that doing work when given really specific restraints makes for a less interesting illustration. I am not dissatisfied with my work I just know where my strength lies and sadly it does not seem to work as well when I am give direct instructions. I do not know if I will get the job, but these were the two samples I sent them. They wanted the three little pigs. First image was supposed to have them off in search of their fortune and it needed to have the pigs wearing shirts with different color shirts and numbers on them. There also needed to be things to count like a tree with eight apples. The second image had to have a wolf wanting to come into the house made of straw that one of the pigs built. There needed to be specific shapes in this one.
All I have to say is its hard to create images from scratch when there are so many images of this story that I already have emblazoned in my brain.
