This project really tested my patience…
I tried to keep to the oriental Japanese theme of ninjas with a traditional Japanese building environment.
But here I couldn’t seem to find an appropriate background.
I realised I didn’t need to do a box collage as I originally planned because a 2D collage is good enough. There is no need to challenge the 2.5D aspect.
Spot Illustration (inspirations):
My draft was really cluttered and messy; there was too many elements and the design wasn’t consistent. So Mimi showed me some spot illustrations to help solve me problem and they were exactly what I had in mind. I just needed references!
