Aesop illustration

Digital
I'm really enjoying this technique that allows you to incorporate textures into illustrations. Following on from last week I wanted to create something using textures that were less harsh. After scrolling through Pinterest I decided that some lovely Aesop products would make a good composition and went from there. Overall I'm quite pleased with how it turned out and look forward to experimenting with this technique more. P.s. just to reiterate, this post is in no way sponsored by Aesop, I just thought the products would make a nice illustration! :)

My first Skillshare Project

I've been a member of Skillshare for a while but have never really submitted any projects. I either didn't have the time or didn't have the tools, but I recently found a class on how to incorporate textures into digital illustrations and because I'd been looking for something like this for so long I felt motivated to have a go! The class was by illustrator/designer Tom Froese and I can't recommend it enough! It's refreshing to learn something new, here's what I created for my 'class project'. I based the design on a recent trip to Hawaii since I had quite a few souvenirs and photos from there.
