So, yesterday while I was sitting in the park, getting some tan going, I was drawing this very simple illustration of a girl and the words “I love Summer”. Because I do! I scanned the illustration and started working on it in illustrator. As I was trying out different colour palettes I had a hard time choosing which one I liked best, so I thought: why not show you all of the colour ways and how you can get different expressions from different colours.
This is what I started with, just solid black and white, simple illustration.
This was the colours I first had in mind, I wanted to make her a blondie… But I never stop at the first option, cause choosing the colour palette is my favorite part… This blue version also turned out to be the coolest summer image.
Reds are hotter!
These are the ones I that turned out the best. Which one do you like best? Keep looking below for a breakdown of the colour palettes.
ps. It’s really freakin’ annoying that there are TWO ways to spell color/colour, haha. By the way, to the new people in here (looks like Pinterest is the way you found me) I just want to say welcome!
