Penguins


Here's a recent print ad done for a popular superannuation firm here in Australia. The version above isn't the final they went with, but it was my favourite out of the lot.

Here's some DETAIL at actual size.

For this job I used rendered 3D elements in the 2D illustration. Below is a tutorial on how I combined the two and the changes it went through to get to the final illustration.

Great work Chris.
Just skimmed over the details of how you created the final this piece, man that’s a lot of work! Clients never really know what they want. I'll defiantly have a good read of entry when I get a chance,
Cheers,
Steve

Which is all I heard from my little 3yr old nephew. You sent him nuts with all of these he loves it.
Nice job Chris. Still like the previous ice loop in the background though.
