Flower Girl Illustration

I stumbled across this evocative photo of a friend of mine from University, and felt compelled to do something with it. I’ve entitled it ‘Flower Girl’ because I’m so very creative with my naming conventions. I’m really subtle.

I’ve been experimenting with vector drawing, so this is done pretty much entirely in illustrator. I feel like I’ve still got a lot to learn, but this was a pretty fun experience. I totally get lost in the work while I’m doing it – this took a few hours as I’m still learning how to manipulate vectors properly. I know it’s not as good as some of the vector illustrators out there, but I think I’m getting the hang of it. Experimenting with the Adobe suite in my spare time has been really helpful in other areas of my work. This was a fun project, and I hope the girl in question doesn’t think I’m a creep for doing it.
