I had fun creating this Logo Illustration for the WellnessAlchemy Healing Center in Hawaii. It is hand painted in gouache paint show and depicts a naturalistic caduseus form with leaves and vines that spiral up the chakra system to a gold sun. Green-gold healing vibration energy is mixed into the leaves and vines. We took the inspiration from the traditional caduseus form from Greek Mythology and used in medicine, but adapted it to a more natural imagery and adaptation of the WellnessAlchemy discipline.
After I have my color and values figured out, I do a final detailed drawing that I will use underneath the final art.
Values & Color
Once I have the Notan figured out, I can move on to the value rough. In this piece I used 7 shades from white to black. From there, I can translate the values into color. This is where it gets really fun!
Notans - Fairies in the Boot
Once I have the thumbnail sketch, I can launch into notans. This is a black and white rendition of how the overall value pattern of the illustration might play out. I did four variations for this piece. Can you guess which one I choose for the final art?
