Adventures of Tintin, one of my favorite comics, is my introduction to Illustrations. I was inspired by the art style of Herge, The creator, and set a goal to illustrate like that at some point, fast forward to now, I gave my twist to that style. That's one reason why I like the heavy-stroke, solid-color style. Illustrations always provide a different interpretation of the things I see around, and this aspect always excites me, A chance to provide my perspective in a visual and exciting way. But as I learn more and come through many other styles, I am finding this strive to experiment with the illustrations and create something unique. In the process, Evolving myself.
My Illustration Styles
Abstract - Inktober I'm obsessed with patterns. Finding that repetition of elements in the grander scheme of things is something I follow in every aspect of design.
Detailed Illustrations Working on extra detailed illustrations is generally reserved for some personal things, This is from the French Team in Worldcup 2018 - Series.
Coming soon. A Motion Graphics project animating my favorite scenes from the Ill-fated show - Game of Thrones. One of my initial steps in animation.

The Challenge involves designing letters A to Z and the numbers 0 - 9 amounting to 36 elements in a unique style and maintain it throughout.
