The brief for this project was to create three illustrations and a book cover for 'The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes'. I quite enjoyed the drawing aspect of this as it really allowed me to practice my skill in ink drawing much more, however I struggled a lot with colour. The illustrations' colour is built up of several layers of watercolour which I scanned in and edited separately. I did this intentionally to allow for experimentation and mistakes.
I wanted to try doing my illustrations a little differently, aiming to sum up aspects of the story in vignettes which would appear above each title.
Overall, I was quite happy with the outcome of this project. I wanted a completely different take on the visual expectation of Sherlock, and I think I achieved that well. I also think I need to continue working with ink as I enjoy it and can definitely see my skill progressing.
