The Yorkshire Puddingz

A refreshing project applying graphic design based illustration skills to a more artistic piece. A step aside from my usual digital painting style of illustration. Created for York based band “The Yorkshire Puddingz”, I created a more cartoon style, inked image to reflect the comic nature of the band’s lyricism. Using separate photos of each band member, the images were hand inked using a Wacom graphics tablet and just the basic brushes in Adobe Illustrator. After a quick clean up and refinement of some areas of line work I then added flat areas of colour to bring it to life, again working directly in Adobe Illustrator. The whole piece evolved very quickly – I didn’t want to overwork the details and worry about making sure faces were perfect as this could loose the playfulness and character.
