Bang! This is really close to being finished. I’m in the middle of getting slayed by my Triptych project (i’m not that good with gouache), but I took a break, fixed my blog up and thought i’d post this version which has been sitting on my desktop for a while.
I decided to go with an earthy red and cream colour pallete as it’s the closest I thought to official native american indian colours. To make it from scratch was going to be too hard so I spent a bit of time tracing the spirit animals (6?) and some basic geometric tiling which is pretty common with indians. Then, once i layed down a basic layout i could just slot everything in and then mess with the colours and beefing it up.
right at the last minute i decided to change the face in the middle to a simpler indian logo, the first one got too tricky with all the paths and didnt stand out much…
