I am looking for an illustration to go in the big hero space on our homepage: http://www.woodproof.com. We want to move away from fashion photography to an illustrative style that appears more handcrafted and unique.
The scene we imagined is an edgy young man or young woman with a classic-cool style — a James Dean in a leather jacket type — standing in a lush green place. The character should wear these sunglasses: http://www.woodproof.com/sunglasses…unglasses/
Feel free to propose your own scene if you like.
We are looking for this illustration to add an edgy, handcrafted quality to the site. These are some sample illustrations that are close to what we have in mind:
However, please do your own approach if you have a better idea; the examples above should not limit you.
In terms of colors, we tend towards black and greys coupled with accents of bright energetic colors such as:
bright green: #beeb64
You could use these colors or explore on your own.
We are hoping for vector artwork (.ai or .eps). The artboard should be 1450 pixels wide and 500 or 600 pixels high.
