Illustration Friday: Tea

Like so many others this week I felt inspired by the latest Geisha-movie. Those gorgeous kimono! Also I drink a lot of tea in every colour, but my favourite is home-made Chai. Makes you feel hot and spicy! I'd be glad about any comments on this or on one of my latest entries as I'm still searching for "my own style"... which seems to be vital if you want to work as an illustrator... which I'd love to some day!

what a beautiful illustration! great colors and composition, the shapes are amazing! in terms of developing your own style, i think you have two distinct ones -- one is this more paper-cut one and the other is the strong linework that you did for the fox on your promo card. you should continue working in both styles, till you figure out which one you enjoy most! cheers! ;)

This is gorgeous. I love the details on her kimono. The colors are so warm and welcoming.

By the way, chai is my favorite, too. (Rooibos "red" chai. Yum.)

Very Sweet! Love the colors and the details on the flowers and Kimono. I think your style is already coming out on its own. One think I might recommend, which I've just started experimenting with myself, is adding some textures, they really give depth to digital illustrations. Elisa

This is gorgeous!
Beautiful colors, and I love how you handled the pattern. It all creates a very nice mood.

I've been doing design work for awhile, but, I too, am trying to figure out what best style to try and promote.

I like a lot of your other posts too, especially the simple birdie!
