More colour experiments

These are intended for a print assignment for uni. I relished the chance to test more palettes from my book and decided to create art based on my lecture sketches.

The Summer Snowman is easily my favourite so far.

Colours and Vectors

While researching for an essay on digital design and colours I came across this really helpful book called The Designer's Guide to Color Combinations, by Leslie Cabarga.

It documents a wide range of successful colour combinations from historic to modern, and gives you each colour in CMYK.

I couldn't help but indulge in a palette by Vernon Grant (the creater of the cereal characters Snap, Crackle and Pop). It was a cover for a children's book called Tinker Tim the Toy Maker.

I honestly think it's the best vector illustration I've achieved- although I must admit to spending more time on it than any other. Let me know what you think.
