Custom portrait illustration : custom portraits from photos client work
I was contacted by lovely Hanna to create a Custom portrait illustration of her 1 year old daughter . She wanted it to be illustrative style and a little bit in a kid style. in this vecotr portrait her daughter would be wearing a traditional Korean dress . I was very excited as I haven’t worked on a Korean dress illustration or any korean client for a portrait 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 portrait illustration was to be done with likeness , i would so much want to show the photo of the little girl but due to privacy of the customer i will be holding that back ( hero custom portrait was done from a photo) . Here are the illustration 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 portrait illustrations this was a quick and simple one , yet i enjoyed working on this cute and simple one .
