illustrations for a set of playing cards


dorcas gazelle



ratel


jackal

grey heron

pelican 


The project has been aproved and I'll be illustrating a small book on biodiversity for the village's schools at the National Park of the Banc d'Arguin, Mauritania.
These images are for a set of playing cards of the different species that living in the area.
 Today I experimented by adding digital color to the background and I like them better. What do you think?

  1. A lovely accomplishment and educational too! The ratel is so cute, Isabel! Yes, the solid background colours are ideal for a project like this!

  3. Bom ano!

    Estão muito bonitas as ilustrações.
    Penso que o background uniforme fica mais gráfico e apelativo para usar nas cartas.

  4. Não sou grande fã do digital, mas para dar cor ao fundo funciona muito bem.
    Ainda não te vi no Urban Sketchers Portugal.
    Um abraço.
