Self initiated Portfolio Work created in Adobe Fresco with Vector Brushes and
Adobe Illustrator on the IPad concentrating on the emotions of being in awe with
yourself - the feeling of being enough and worth it!
The goal is to create characters that are strong and powerful. Displaying modern and independent women in their daily lifes.
I wanted to create encouraging and vibrant illustrations to support myself and others on their journey to feel good enough to be themselves. Bold and strong colors for me representing energy and confidence with adding some subtle textures I wanted to show vulnerability and uniqueness because we all fight our own battles which are not comparable to each other.
For the entire process I used Adobe Fresco as the program can work with pixel and vector. For the sketch I used the crayon brush and for coloring I worked with the vector brushes - eventually added final touches to give some texture with the halftone brushes or Keith Haring brushes by Kyle T. Webster brushes! I love to mix both techniques even though most of my work these days is vector based. With Adobe Fresco I can create vector illustrations but with a very painterly feel!
So far everyone liked it! People seemed to feel heard and well represented even some responded that looking at the illustrations made them feel strong and inspired!
