tr7 sk8 invited his audience on instagram to illustrate a skateboard deck for their shop.

artists were allowed to illustrate anything, but they could use a maximum of 5 colours for their artwork.

for this project, i participated with my illustration:

I posted the work in progress, made a short animation to show the details and used mockups to finalise the project.

outline

the number of colours allowed determined how intricate outline and colouring could be.

my design needed at least 2 more colours to work.

to overcome this obstacle, i took advantage of the natural colour of the wood and used a dotted filling method to obtain 'extra' colours.
