As I mentioned before I am taking part in the Lilla Rogers MATS bootcamp. The first assignment was to create a colouring book cover inspired by 1920’s hairstyles.
After some research via the internet of 1920’s women, hairstyles etc, I began drawing. I drew mainly women who had moody/sad expressions, whom were wearing lovely textiles and were surrounded by flowers. I also really love incorporating textiles and pattern’s into my drawings.
I worked a bit on my layout on paper and in the computer, and added some colour to the final front cover. Here is the final front cover, “Women of the 1920’s”.
With this title I wanted to say that this is a colouring book dedicated to the women of this era. That despite them possibly being viewed as sex symbols, they were beautiful strong women.
Overall I am happy with the outcome of my front cover. I think it represents my drawing style well. However I think that my lady looks a bit sad and maybe I should have made here expression slightly happier and stronger, but at the same time alot of the images that I looked at depicted women who had a slight glimmer of sadness in their eye’s. Of course there are always things that I could have changed, done better, etc, but for the first project of this bootcamp I am happy with what I have produced.
