This project required us to use pen and watercolor together. I took it as an opportunity to create a pattern-like composition.
I created a viable pattern with the arctic animals playing instruments. I wanted to play around with the idea of a pattern with a light subject and dark background. That said, we weren't allowed to use digital in any way (goodbye, copy tool and layers!) so in the end I opted for the flying animals instead.
After a few color comps I began the final. Fun fact: each animal in the final pattern is hand drawn and watercolored individually.
