Digital Vector Sunflower
The weather has turned for the better today, I created this illustration to switch into a spring mood. I created the layered sunflower petal effect, after studying sunflower photos online through Google images. I liked many layers of petals a sunflower has. I created a range of petals to make them each look different from the next when they were placed together to form the sunflower, which I believe gives the sunflower depth.
The centre of the sunflower was traced from a photo of a sunflower using Adobe Illustrator, and the depth of the centre is achieved by using different colours. I placed the petal in a non-uniform way and using the 3 tones of orange to arrange the petals into a layered step look. once the sunflower head was created I placed it on to the stem, the main focus I wanted to bring across was the sunflower head.
