The two original concepts explored in the process of developing this illustration. The second concept proceeded to visual development.
Attempt #1 at a finished render. The design seemed dim and imbalanced for the blog page, so we went back to the drawing board.
Round #2 of concepts explored in developing the illustration. The second concept proceeded to visual development.
Colours explored during visual development. The second colour concept proceeded to visual development but with less colour variation.
Final render used for the title illustration. The image was darkened for text legibility on the blog page.
Cooler version of the final render.
