Chinese Zodiac Illustrations

For my drawing class finals at Parsons, we were given free reign over what we wanted to draw, so I decided to create mini 5x7 posters with geometric zodiac animals on a red watercolor background. I first created watercolor splashes, then uploaded them into Illustrator, where I then created the geometric line over the scanned paintings. After printing them, I went over the lines and Chinese characters with gold Gelly Roll pens.
