Image 3: After the high, the angel is falling to her sadness, emotional issues, and emptiness.
to adding typography: HIGH ANGEL
For this project we were required to produce a photo-realistic illustration of a flower, a fruit, and leaves. To create the flower I used gradient meshes over live Paint. For the final step, I added details in a separate layer over the meshes.
This illustration was to be placed as part of a magazine spread. For mDavid Carson, I used colors, shapes and typography inspired by his chaos and distinctive style. I also incorporated one of his surfing photograph as a background for his illustrating portrait.
