These are some of the illustrations I created for a collaboration project between me and my friend Jastis. We always start with the words written by Jastis, then I make illustrations based on her words. This is a long term project and we aspire to be able to publish a book with our work.
From the words that Jastis wrote, I tried to absorb the meaning, then I tried to be the subject. I started to imagine how I would be if I were in that situation, what would I do? etc.
After I got an idea of the feeling, situation, and atmosphere of what Inas wrote, I matched it with the color guide from Bhumi Space. Bhumi Space itself has an own color guide, it's brown, dark blue an white.
I usually use Adobe Illustrator software.
First, I sketched out the briefs I got, then gave them colors from the guides. And I started to feel the atmosphere of the illustration. I will think about what effect I have to give to make my drawing feel strong, whether people will understand the message of what I'm drawing, how I can make this image feel more alive, etc.
We got a very good impressions of our works on our Instagram account @bhumi.space.
It makes me happy and I'm excited to draw more.
