Illustration Friday: Pointy

So I finally got around to posting again; the summer suddenly got super busy, and once again I underestimate how long low poly art takes (this one roughly 3 weeks-ish?). But I’m seriously loving this style of digital art the more I do it. As for the theme, I’m just lucky they’ve been picking themes that just so happen to work with my illustration for the past few weeks. Peonies aren’t exactly pointy themselves, but the glass effect of the art style changes that! If you picture something in your mind you want to do in a low poly art style, you just really have to commit to it; and every time I’ve tried it the time consuming work really pays off. Definitely do the pen tool/filling in sections so you can see how it progresses, because redrawing something in only triangles and with the finicky pen tool to boot can eventually put you in a zombie like state…
