After 2 years , i am coming back to posting to my shutterstock and Dreamstime portfolio , With over 1000 images on microstock sites in my portfolio , I stopped uploading two years back.
I wanted to work towards refining my work and during this time i made tons and tons of images , and now i think it is time to share all of these whats the use of these sitting in my hard drive anyway!
I have just uploaded around 70 new images and working towards submitting them through stock sites these include vector seamless patterns as well as some graphical element sets great for stationary design , invitations and textile . Inviting you to take a look ! 🙂
Ive been working on a project for monsters for a kids nursery , these monsters are to be converted into wall decals . While i was at it i started playing around with this little peeking monster 🙂 . Here is a quote for the kids .
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 .
Character illustrations for business have always been in trend , Now every next blog is popping up with a customized character illustration which speaks a lot about how you are presenting your business. 2D vector illustrations as character illustrations , matching the writer’s appearance are gaining more popularity taking a place as part of a logo or website header in graphic design.

I will be challenging myself every month with a new challenge where i will use a specific subject and create illustration with it . You are also welcome to join me in the challenge .
The fascinating thing about challenging yourself to draw and create is that you are connecting with other people working on the same theme , while you get a chance to improve yourself .
this has become a little habit of mine that after a while when i find my work coming to a stale stop in terms of new art, i challenge myself , this was done in the past by me as well when i challenged myself to draw 100 illustrations doing 5 per day.
