Vasilisa The Beautiful

Adobe Illustrator
Fall 2016
ART 283 Seminar And Project – Digital Illustration

The second narrative illustration I did in this course was for the Russian Folk Tale “Vasilisa the Beautiful.” I went through several thumbnails and did research on different interpretations of Baba Yaga the witch, and also traditional Russian clothing from the time period. The characters played such an important role that I wanted to include them from different scenes in the narrative into one single illustration. I sketched out a lineart and traced it over into vector form using the Adobe Draw application and recolored it in desktop Adobe Illustrator. Further editing took place in Adobe Photoshop.
