This project was carried out from a work order from "Perro Pastel", an association that protects dogs and cats, they carry out different activities to collect money and help find a home for those pets that do not have one. This time they asked me for the illustration to stamp on T-shirts.
The illustration had to represent his work and his happy spirit. Of course, the illustration should have cats and dogs, but I decided that they are having fun, celebrating with each other.
I always start working by making sketches. I decided that the illustration should have the image of the dog "Vidal", since because of him the group began, but it was not going to be alone but accompanied by other friends. I made three different proposals and sent it for the client to decide the most appropriate. After the illustration was approved, I defined the color palette, it had to be colorful to represent those friends having fun.
The illustration is done in Photoshop and graphic tablet. Before that I scan the image I make in pencil and paper. Then in Photoshop I started painting the characters according to the chosen palette and once I advanced I started with the shadows and details of the illustration.
People have had a positive reaction to the project. I feel that the illustration has a positive message and the shirts were printed super well.
