Crooks Illustration

I'm still developing the style of these illustrations. I'd like to make the style less realistic. I try to go for surprising color schemes and give the illustration a decorative look. The drawing however still somewhat pushes me towards a more realistic color usage, away from the more graphic approach that I'm aiming for. I'll get there.

I have a fair amount of new work to show you. Let's start off with this piece. I've made this piece for the portfolio and it's based loosely on a picture from the sartorialist, a well-known fashion blog. In between my cartoonier work, i love to do these kind of illustrations. Having a picture to work with for posing and attire, gives you the opportunity to focus on your interpretation instead of researching clothing, endlessly looking for poses, et cet. Having said that although this illustration is quite a departure from the original picture, i would like to have pushed myself towards a less neutral style.

Comments are welcome.
