I was contacted by lovely Hanna to create a Custom Character illustration of her 1 year old daughter . The character would her wearing a traditional Korean dress . I was very excited as I haven’t worked on a Korean dress illustration.
Hanbok or Chosŏn-ot is the traditional Korean dress. It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. A nd is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations.
The illustration was to be done with likeness , i would so much want to show the picture of the little girl but due to privacy of the customer i will be holding that back . Here are the two illustrations that i did for her done following the brief.
Initially i started the drawing by working on the features of the girl when i was happy with it i continued developing the dress. Since this was a quick turnaround requirement , i didn’t get to spend as much time as i would have liked to spend detailing the illustration .
As compared to my previous works of Custom character illustrations this was a quick and simple one , yet i enjoyed working on this cute and simple one .
