Illustration of the Week #40: Field Guide Page
This is a two week
topic. Have any topic suggestions? Post them in the suggestions thread!
This weeks topic is Field Guide Page
Your task is to create a page for a field guide. The can choose the subject--birds, mammals, insects, plants, rocks, etc, but they must be real and not made up (no aliens or anything). You can paint either just one species/rock type, or you can paint multiple ones and compare/contrast them. You can paint just a single view if you want, but often a couple views is best. Remember that for field guides the main goal is not necessarily shiny rendering, but rather identification
! Take a look at how existing field guides are done. Often then flatten or simplify things, paint things in profile, will emphasize certain unique characteristics which are used in identification, or will put arrows pointing those aspects out.
The deadline is Sunday 9th of December, 23:59 GMT
