Editorial Project: Total Girl PH, April 2015 Issue

I’ve been incorporating textures to my illustrations little by little and I’m pretty happy with how these turned out. I’m still trying to learn the right technique so the learning and experimentation continues!

These are so far my favorite bunch of editorial illustrations. All these three illustrations are from Total Girl Philippines’ April 2015 issue.

Editorial Illustration: TG Philippines, November 2014 Issue

I’ve been into textures lately. I think it makes vector illustrations more interesting. I’ve been trying to incorporate hand-drawn textures in my illustrations little by little. In this garden scene, I added a bit of texture to the background. Unfortunately, you won’t see it in the final printed illustration (damn!). You’d be able to see it though in the vector image below.

For the “Totally Embarrassing” section (which I do monthly illustrations for), the TG team chose their favorite stories from the old ones. So I don’t have a new illustration for this month’s “Totally Embarrassing”, but 2 of my old illustrations were used for this “Best of” feature.

Here are some work-in-progress shots. The illustration doesn’t look good at all without the details!

I usually start by choosing a color palette, then I tweak the colors along the way.
