Organic Symmetry in a Cross-App Illustration

Día de los Muertos artwork

As I prepare to make some sugar skulls this year, I thought it would be fun to start with a primer. I found this tutorial and couldn’t resist.

I approached this piece a little differently than did the author of the tutorial—a professional illustrator. I don’t think there’s any right or wrong way to execute this imagery, and the final outcome is bound to be heavily influenced by artistic preferences, technologies at hand, even recent creative exposures. The key to the piece turned out to be light/dark -play and a more organic symmetry than our illustrator friend used.

    It’s beautiful, Gina. I’d like to see a jack-o-lantern from you, I bet it would be super cool.
