Alien InvadersBack to Portfolio
This illustration was created for a practice exercise. The goal here was to choose an illustration style and a separate image for color reference and combine them. The mean colors borrowed from the image were green, blue, purple, yellow and black.
This closeup shows the details of the alien and the green tractor beam which is the best part of the illustration because of the way the layers blend together. This effect makes the illustration come to life in a way that allows you to easily picture it in motion.
The lights and shading on the UFO make it look very three dimensional even though it's only a two dimensional image. It's easy to visualise the illustration being animated and it almost looks like it's about to start spinning.
