Dairy Cows Illustrations series for packaging

Recently I have been working on a series of very content-with-life dairy cattle! These illustrations were commissioned via a design agency for who are producing print advertisements and packaging for their animal-welfare company client. One of the requests was that I incorporate a touch of blue and purple into the colour scheme - it was really nice to be able to add in such lovely rich colours.

I wanted to really show off their kind characters and sweet, curious personalities.

For this next one, I worked on three seperate pieces before bringing them together digitally to create the composition of the final illustration.

To accompany them, I also created some extra buttercup meadow/grass patches. These are a lot of fun to do!

Here are some of the work-in-progress sketches from them:

Gerbils and Budgie Pet Portraits Feature in a Youtube video!

The lovely lady who commissioned the gerbils and budgie illustrations is a frequent Youtuber, and uploaded a video featuring my artwork! If you are interested to know how my illustrations look in real life, you can see them here. These portraits were smaller than I usually work at an A5 size, whereas I usually work at A4 and larger.
