GUARDIANS of the GALAXY-Vector Tribute

  • Very happy to be part of the Poster Posse's Global Creative Tribute #9- Guardians of the Galaxy.
     
    Here's my vector case study - showcasing my start to finish to my latest pop-deco tribute.
    Action & Adventure is what inspired me most for this composition and I decided to interpret that through hard angles, colorful sweeps and high intense lighting.

    As some of you maybe familiar with my process- I don't sketch my ideas on paper
    ( unless I'm away from my studio- but thinking of getting a wacom cintiq hybrid to solve that issue- :) ).
    I prefer to allow the raw energy and excitement to be the driving force and evolve the composition.

    So here's 4 quick vector sketches, exploring the possible composition and mood.

    I normally stay away from "Custom Brushes"- but I might start to play with them.
    For Rocket- I decided to explore just one of the native brushes in Adobe Illustrator CC.
