Year of the Pig

Based on the year I was born, I am a boar.

 

Concepting

Per usual for me, I started with the roots at the back, then the heart. I decided the heart would be the brightest area and based my shading from that. I colored each area individually. 

Reference & Inspiration

I looked mostly to Victo Ngai and a few of her projects regarding to the Chinese New Year.

In The Streets

I originally did this project when I was first learning how to digitally paint (I'm still learning how to digital paint). The first piece is strong, but there was no interaction with the borders, and the colors were far too abrasive. Finding a much softer color palette and roots that filled in more interest: I was already far happier.
