Halloween Icons

I'm taking a class on how to use Adobe Illustrator. Our first assignment was to design six icons that are all made from basic shapes (squares, circles, etc.). All six icons have to follow the same theme, and I decided to be a bit seasonal with my project. So.....Happy Halloween a little early!

Flower Sketches

It's been awhile since I posted. I meant to put these up a month ago. These are some idea sketches for some sort of candle label or soap label...or something along those lines. I'm hoping to color them later in Adobe Illustrator.

Sketch to Final

The following is a little insight into my art process, from sketch to final artwork.

These are the original quick idea sketches.
Here I've taken one idea and drawn a more refined sketch of the monster.
And here's the final image after I've painted it, scanned it in, and added some text.
